Personal Awareness and Ethical Behaviour in CBT

The day covers issues of development, engagement and motivation in Eating Disorders (ED), along with a range of CBT interventions as they apply to ED.

Can be taken as an individual distance learning course or as a part of a Master Practitioner Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Approved by the British Psychological Society.

The day is dedicated to the detailed discussion on standards of personal conduct and ethical behaviour expected from CBT practitioners. We will try to find whether there are any guidelines available to therapists, how to implement them and look into the issues that regularly crop up in everyday practice. If you have any personal dilemmas or often find the particular issues difficult to deal with – bring them along – this is the perfect day to address them.

Come, reflect and be periodically surprised by the things you might discover.

Issues covered include:

  • Who do guidelines apply to and not apply to?
  • The degree to which a therapist’s personal behaviour (as well as their professional) are deemed to be regulated
  • How the question of client confidentiality works in practice
  • How ethical guidelines apply not just to yourself but also the way you deal with and are responsible for other professionals involved in your work
  • Acceptable and unacceptable terms you can use to describe yourself as a CBT practitioner
  • Where and when it is acceptable to see clients
  • And many other topics…
