Date: 5 March 2021 - 23 March 2021

Pre-recorded lecture videos and slides available: 5 March to 23 March 2021

This course provides an introduction to group cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) for menopause symptoms.

Overview: Cognitive behavioural based self-management skills are increasingly popular within physical health settings and have been demonstrated to be effective in helping women who are experiencing problematic menopausal symptoms. This course will help healthcare professionals to build confidence and skills to effectively support women who are interested in developing these skills themselves. The training will be delivered in a virtual lecture and workshop format. Delegates will learn to apply their new knowledge and skills to facilitate self-management strategies within a 6 session group intervention, or working individually with patients.
Virtual course format: Delegates will have access to pre-recorded videos of the course lectures, with PowerPoint lecture slides, from 5 March to 23 March 2021. They can watch the lectures at a time convenient for them and they will be able to submit questions via the BMS website for discussion during the Q&A/group discussion webinars (there will also be the opportunity to ask questions on the day).

The course facilitators will then host a one day series of Zoom webinars on Friday 19 March 2021 – please click on the link below to see the full virtual course programme. Each session will incorporate directed group discussion, together with Q&A. This allows plenty of opportunity to clarify information in the lecture videos and reinforce learning.

Who should attend: This is a combined theory and practical training module aimed at doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals (e.g. applied psychologists and registered counsellors) who work regularly in the field of women’s health or within a primary care setting.

Please note, this course is for registered healthcare professionals only and it is important to be able to access clinical supervision when using psychologically informed principles with patients. You will need to provide your professional registration number when booking the course.

Fees: £475 (which includes a copy of Managing Hot Flushes and Night Sweats with Group CBT: An evidence based treatment manual for health professionals by Hunter, M.S. and Smith M (2015), Routledge Taylor Francis)
