SETAS has a range of courses for employers, practitioners and individuals seeking to improve their mental health and wellbeing knowledge and awareness.
Living Life To The Full
This is an eight-session programme using CBT concepts – the most evidenced-based talking therapy for people affected by low mood, stress, anxiety or depression.
Developed by Dr Chris Williams, professor of Psychiatry at University of Glasgow and a recognised expert in developing self-help resources based on CBT. It introduces participants to the ‘Five Areas Approach’ which illustrates that events and situations in our lives affect how we think, how we feel, how we behave and affect us physically. Thinking and behaviour are the two areas that we have most control over, if we tend to think and/or behave in extreme and unhelpful ways, it can adversely affect the other areas and lead to us getting caught in a ‘vicious circle’.
The programme therefore focuses on how we can challenge and change our thinking and behaviour to turn the circle into a ‘virtuous circle’.
