The Living Life Classes are very popular among primary and secondary care services and have even proved useful within inpatient settings. They can be used alone as a group treatment for symptoms of depression and anxiety, or for people to attend whilst waiting for other therapies.
As a general life skills course all based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) the course aims to teach attendees to become their own therapist with the support of the trainers. The course is centered around 9 Living Life colourful booklets with associated worksheets for clients to fill out between sessions.
One of our team members will visit you at your chosen location to provide training for up to 40 members of your staff team. The training is very interactive, with attendees engaging in tasks that clients would in a real group, to demonstrate basic CBT based interventions, such as learning how to fly, acting in a more confident way and doing a WOW walk.
The course can be delivered over one or two days. Within the two day course your team will get a chance to practice presenting the course to their fellow learners, with no seriousness or judgment!
