The first session will offer an overview of the training process which will be elaborated in subsequent sessions. These will cover the following:
- How to identify training needs and structure training proposals
- How to define training objectives
- How to design a course or training event so as to maximise learning and retention

By the end of this course, students will be able to demonstrate the ability to:
- Identify cognitive therapy training needs
- Define objectives

To encourage self-reflection (the most effective learning method for experienced therapists), students are asked to keep a learning log, detailing training and supervision experience on the course and elsewhere, relevant client contact, and private study. This is to be maintained for the duration of the module for which the student is registered.
