ABC of CBT: Skills for GPs

  • Duration
    20 hours 
  • Program Outline
    Psychological presentations are increasingly common in general practice. For many people, psychological care delivered by their regular general practitioner is both an acceptable and accessible starting point to seeking help for their emotional health.

    Our new ABC of CBT provides GPs with a broad range of psychological skills readily applied in a general practice setting. Successful completion of the program also fulfills the criteria for FPS 2 accreditation allowing GPs to access Medicare item numbers for the delivery of focused psychological strategies.

    2 x 6-hour workshops, and 8-hours of self directed learning between Day 1 and Day 2.
    1 x 2 hour coaching session (online) two weeks after Day 2.
