Learning Objectives: The Manual is focussed on the introduction of the new ‘cutting edge’ advances in CBT. Demonstrating to the therapist how they can introduce the new approach into their practice immediately.
It should be noted that CBT was developed over 50 years ago, much has changed.
Course Structure: This new upgrade to CBT has been the subject of several European University Presentations. The book written by the Shirrans was a best seller, published by Hay House, the foreword was written by Professor Philip Zimbardo of Stanford University. The TactileCBT training manual is extensive. Consequently, it aims to provide a sound understanding of the approach and the skills required to integrate the CBT extension into your current client work practice. The training manual is offered at the level of continuing professional development. It is not a comprehensive training programme in CBT. And obviously it does not qualify readers to practice as therapists. Rather, it offers introductory training in a therapeutic approach that will supplement and extend existing therapeutic qualifications and skills.

Whats it all about – So, how helpful would it be, if in just a few sessions, we could show our patients/clients how it was possible at a cognitive level, to freeze time, for a few seconds? What if they could press pause, just like when they were watching a movie? And then use that time, to consider the consequences of the actions they were about to take, simultaneously weighing up the possible alternatives? Would they snap at their husband, or wife, so sharply? Or would they shout at their child when they’re winding them up? Would their child think twice about bullying? And potentially, would a young gang member think of the consequences of their actions if they pulled a knife? How many people have written a text message, pressed ‘Send’, then a minute later desperately wished they had paused and thought it through first?
