Building Emotional Resilience & Critical Thinking Through Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Based Skills
Traditionally, CBT has been highly effective in helping to treat anxiety and depression. However, several top psychologists have recently argued that teaching CBT to young people can act as a preventive measure to such conditions, whilst also enhancing critical thinking skills.
By learning techniques to spot your distorted thoughts, you can identify catastrophising, mind-reading, labelling, blaming, and black-and-white thinking. Essentially, you learn to think critically, problem solve and, in a sense, call yourself out when your mind is distorting the truth or making misinformed assumptions. During this webinar, Gemma Laming, a psychotherapist who practices low-intensity CBT, will explore how developing such skills lay the foundations for a resilient mindset and deep critical thinking. Gemma will also offer various tips for introducing CBT skills within the school, home and classroom environment.
