“The key principles of CBT can support social care workers to better understand their thinking styles and associated feelings and behaviours; thereby gaining insight in terms of unhelpful responses, identifying more effective coping strategies and enhancing resilience for wellbeing and practice.”
This CareKnowledge report, written by Dr Kelly J Alexander and Sara Henley, highlights the use of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), providing an overview of CBT and its evidence base, focusing on developing skills in using the approach with case examples, and offering guidance about using CBT in practice. It includes a worksheet template for the application of CBT to practice.
