Intensive CBT masterclass for alcohol and other drug professionals

Join our CBT experts Professor Nicole Lee, Past President and Fellow of the AACBT, and Paula Ross, Counselling Psychologist and clinical expert, in this top rated 4-day workshop.

This course has been developed especially for alcohol and other drug workers, particularly those in counselling or case management roles, who want to build and strengthen the core CBT clinical skills that are the foundation for all best practice CBT protocols from traditional CBT to newer cognitive therapy models like the mindfulness-based therapies.

  • Get back to basics and understand exactly what makes CBT tick
  • Learn the why not just the how so you can apply core skills to any CBT type
  • Unlock the art and science of your practice to take it to the next level

Our unique interactive self-practice approach means you will really experience CBT from the inside, creating a deep understanding of how it works.

Cognitive behaviour therapy is an umbrella term that includes a number of solution-oriented therapies focusing on self-reflection, problem-solving and learning skills that can be applied across situations, such as:

  • Cognitive Therapy
  • Relapse Prevention
  • Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy
  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
  • Dialectical Behaviour Therapy
  • Compassion Focused Therapy
