Practical Training: Increasing Self-Regulation through Practice
Full course description
This practical bridges the gap between science and practice by applying Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). During the practical, students are invited to work in couples, both as a client and as a therapist. The therapist helps the client to move closer to a desired outcome, a regulatory goal. The aim is for students to utilise various self-regulation techniques and practical exercises in an attempt to increase self-regulation of the client. Students will carefully track their client’s progress using observations and measurements before, during, and after the intervention. After completing the therapy, students write a report on the weekly sessions and discuss the main outcomes of their intervention.
Students will be able to understand and apply the following concepts:
- therapeutic interventions;
- cognitive behavioural therapy;
- communication skills;
- self-regulation techniques.
