Abstract

Improve your understanding of depression and anxiety and find out more about an effective and evidence-based treatment: CBT

Description

##

Anxiety and depression are terms discussed widely, in different media and amongst family and friends. But what do those labels actually mean? On this five week course, from the University of Reading, you will explore what it means to have anxiety or depression and how they are identified. The course will also demonstrate the leading evidence based treatment – Cognitive Behaviour Therapy.

It’s important to emphasise that this course is not intended to be a self-help ‘treatment’ for anyone experiencing anxiety or depression, nor can it be used to formally ‘diagnose’ yourself or anyone else.

This beginner’s course is aimed at anyone with an interest in mental illness generally, and anxiety and depression in particular. This may include:

• those who are currently experiencing or have previously experienced emotional difficulties,

• family and friends of those who are experiencing emotional difficulties,

• primary (or other) healthcare professionals who have a frontline role in detecting mental health difficulties and offering appropriate support and guidance to those affected.
