Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) Skills Physician Wellness Group Training

The Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) Skills Physician Wellness Group Training Course is an 8-week course designed to provide practicing BC physicians with education and training to support their own mental wellbeing through evidence-based self-management strategies. Secondary benefits include increased awareness of CBT and its clinical applications and training in skills coaching for patients.

Each week consists of a 2-hour session facilitated by a specially trained family physician or psychiatrist, which accommodates a maximum of 12 learners (with a solo facilitator) or 24 learners (with two facilitators) to maximize opportunities for group discussion and questions. During the weekly workshops, participants will practice incorporating CBT Skills into their own unique situations.

Our fall schedule of groups for 2022 is now open for registration. Additional sessions will be added in 2022 as they are confirmed (see sessions below).
