Are Core CBT theory and skills taught?*

CBT training should teach the fundamental theories and skills that underpin cognitive and behavioural therapy. This includes the best evidence-based treatments and core protocols for depression and anxiety disorders.

To meet the criteria for accreditation, the first 200 CBT taught hours of your training should be these core skills. To be certain the course covers these, you could check their programme details against our Core Curriculum 2021. Some courses may be able to give you information on how much of this they meet.
