We create education grounded in quality improvement and best practices for adult learning.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) Skills Physician Wellness Group Training

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

Please note: These CBT Skills Cohorts are intended for continuing education purposes only. If you are experiencing symptoms of depression or anxiety and would prefer to be in a treatment-oriented group, please contact Physician Health to attend a CBT group with them, covered by MSP. More information can be found here: https://www.physicianhealth.com/cbt-groups/ or you can reach them at @email.

FORMAT

The course is delivered virtually in real-time over the span of 8 weeks. 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.

SKILLS GAINED

During the weekly workshops, participants will practice incorporating CBT Skills into their own unique situations. The program also requires reflective exercises and learners’ personal commitments to practice change, as well as weekly readings, resources and interactive content via an online portal.

Learners can claim up to 48.0 Mainpro+ credits/16.0 MOC Section 1 credits.

REGISTRATION

All physicians can benefit from the UBC CPD Physician Wellness Groups. Priority placement will be given to physicians from select regions who may be interested in proceeding with advanced facilitator training.
