Description

Do you find yourself constantly washing hands out of a fear of germs? Does someone you know have difficulty traveling because of their fear of flying? All these and many more symptoms are part of underlying problems relating to anxiety. Anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress and many other mental health concerns have become extremely common in today’s world. The number of people who check into hospitals for mental health concerns is quite staggering. This course on cognitive behaviour therapy will address these issues in detail. The use of numerous techniques and methods to alleviate or, in some cases, altogether remove mental health symptoms will be the center of our attention. We begin by explaining the various mental disorders and their typical symptoms. We will define anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). We then analyze the theoretical and practical methods that have been developed over the years to address these major health concerns.

Are you looking to recommend a loved one to a therapist for their anxiety? Or are you looking to study and diagnose the symptoms you face yourself? This course has got all these areas covered. Explore the background of various authors and analysts and examine their development of cognitive techniques over the years. We discuss the studies made by these analysts and their impact on mental health treatments. Explore other mental health disorders such as obsessive-compulsive disorder, generalized anxiety disorder and panic disorder. Learn all about the practical techniques used by therapists to treat these disorders. You will investigate ‘in vivo exposure’, imaginal exposure, cognitive-based techniques and various other forms of therapy. We will discuss therapy sessions, their efficacy and the administration of multiple drugs.

Do you need to develop a coping technique yourself for your OCD? The course covers psychoeducation and behavioural strategies that you can teach to patients or use yourself. These approaches help the patient become more present ‘in the moment’ and stop taking their fear and panic seriously. Whether it is breathing techniques or going through simulated situations to get over the anxiety and panic, we will demonstrate all these techniques in detail. Finally, we discuss the relationship between the therapist and the patient to overcome these problems. This coordination is paramount for a successful recovery. Mental health concerns have increased considerably over the last few years. Added to the pressure of coping with these distressing symptoms is the taboo and stigma attached to these diseases, making them even more challenging to diagnose and cure. This course will provide you with all the necessary terms, techniques and methods available in today’s world to make your own life and the lives of those around you better. So don’t waste any more time. Start your learning journey today!
