The CBT'ers Club hosts regular Topic and Discussion Gatherings which are all well-attended by our Registered Members.

 

Topic and Discussion Gatherings constitute 3 hours of CPD and Certificates of Participation are awarded at the end of each gathering.

 

Topic and Discussion Gatherings include the discussion of a specific topic (e.g. depression, anxiety, accreditation etc), treatment plans, case studies, personal and professional experiences, video/film footage, as well as ideas, updates and other CBT-related news.

 

Previous Topic and Discussion Gatherings include: Working with Depression; Accreditation; Working with Self-Esteem in CBT Practice; CBT and Self-Harm; Challenges and Dilemmas in CBT; Anxiety and CBT Therapy; Using Psychological Assessment Scales in CBT and lots more! See Events and Gatherings Section for more information about upcoming events!

Topic and Discussion Gatherings

Peer Support and Supervision Group

We are launching a separate Peer Support and Supervision Group (PSSG) in autumn 2016.

 

Peer Support and Supervision formed part of the Topic and Discussion Gatherings that we have been running since 2013/2014. However, we have found there isn't really enough time to squash peer supervision, support and a topic discussion (and other bits and pieces) into a 2.5 hour slot.

 

So we are going to separate these and have individual Topic and Discussion Gatherings and Peer Support and Supervision Groups. As with all our events and gatherings, all Registered Members of The CBT'ers Club will receive invites to these as, and when, they are scheduled.

 

PSSGs will last 3 hours (although this is negotiable in advance) and CPD Certificates of Participation will be awarded at the end of each gathering.

 

PSSGs provide an effective form of leaderless peer support and supervision and consist of up to 6-8 Members. Please see the table opposite for some of the benefits of PSSGs.

 

Our PSSGs will be managed by a Facilitator, who is also a Member and who also participates in the peer support and supervision process. The Facilitator’s role is not supervisory but to keep time, ensure everyone who wishes to talk is given the opportunity, to maintain confidentiality, ensure the working agreement/contract is adhered to and other administration/organisational matters. The Facilitator is NOT the Supervisor as the group is focused on peer support and supervision.

 

The PSSG will work from The PSG Model and includes, for instance: adherence to a working agreement/contract, confidentiality, gate-keeping, boundary management and working with resistance.

 

All Registered Members of The CBT'ers Club will receive invites to PSSGs as, and when, they are scheduled. If you are interested in becoming a Member of The CBT'ers Club, please see the Membership Section. If you would like more information about PSSGs, please get in touch and we shall email you an information sheet.

 

Upcoming PSSGs will be posted on the Events and Gatherings Section of this website.

Professional Services

P.E.D.S stands for: Presentation, Experiences, Discussion and Skills. At the request of Members, we will offer P.E.D.S Gatherings a few times each year in addition to our usual gatherings. This ensures that we offer a variety of different meetings, gatherings and events..

 

P.E.D.S Gatherings will last 3 hours and involve a 30-45 minute presentation (Presentation) on a specific topic/theme (e.g Personality Disorders, Depression, Eating Disorders etc.). The presentation will be followed by sharing our own professional (and personal) experiences of that particular theme/topic (Experiences). This will be followed by a discussion, (Discussion) and some skills-based activities and practice (Skills). CPD Certificates will be issued .

Social Events

Being a psychotherapist, counsellor, coach, psychologist or practitioner - especially in private practice - can often be a lonely and isolating place, can't it?

 

You don't see other practitioners often, might not have anyone to discuss ideas with (except in supervision) or you might wish to connect and discuss work-related experiences and information with other people.

 

Well, it doesn't have to be like that. We aim to have two socials per year (summer and winter) in-between our more formal events and gatherings.

 

Social gatherings means we can have a wee laugh and some fun too! That's really important! Socials are friendly, informal and fun. They offer time to chat, make new friends and a chance to relax for a while over a lunch or a yummy dinner.

 

Come along, relax, makes new friends and have a lovely lunch or afternoon tea and some laughs with other Members!
