There has been a long standing history in the UK of viewing physical and mental health conditions as two separate and distinct areas. In March 2016, The King Fund published ‘bringing together physical and mental health-a new frontier for integrated care, highlighting the need to use an integrated model of care using a more ‘whole person’ perspective. This training looks at supporting psychological therapists to develop the necessary skills to do so for clients who experience various long term conditions. This training is very practical using case studies and practising this approach in groups.
What the workshop covers? Is stress psychological or physical? The role of cortisol. Why use an integrated approach? Using an integrated approach with: Diabetes; COPD/Cardiovascular problems; pain disorders (such as fibromyalgia, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome); and with Cancer care.
What this course will do for you? The training covers a wide range of topics from introductory through to advance. The combination of lecture, case studies (video/ audio analysis) and role plays significantly develops skills and knowledge and techniques and provides an effective and cost efficient investment in your professional development.
This training will provide a CPD Certificate (6.5 hours) signed by the course trainer and Health City.
This training may also be used for personal development and growth.
