CBT - A course in cognitive behavioural therapy, online (English)

The objective of the course is to increase people’s capacity to deal with negative feelings by using the methods of cognitive behavioural therapy in their daily lives and thus change thought and feelings and subsequently maintain their well-being. 

The method is suitable for individuals who feel anxiety, sadness, stress or some other type of distress and want to find ways to improve their well-being.

Participants learn how to identify connections between thoughts, feelings and behaviour which control well-being. They learn how to find ways to break up the vicious cycle of distress and deal with these negative thoughts.

Teaching methods involve lecturing, discussions and working on projects in class as well as work without an instructor. Studying at home is important because students work on various projects which encourage them to acquire the methods of CBT. The course was developed in cooperation with psychologists at Reykjalundur and we use Reykjalundur's CBT handbook in the course.

With conscious attention and inner peace

This is a 4 week self-empowering course which is based on the methods of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)- Positive psychology- Mindfulness and Yoga Nidra deep relaxation.

The course is well suited for individuals who experience a lot of strain, stress, anxiety, depression/sadness or sleep problems.

The objectives of the course are

•To provide participants with education and ways to care for mental and physical health.

Course structure:

• We will examine the methodology of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) which is based on the theory that our interpretation, expectations and attitudes significantly affect the way we feel. The assumption is that how you think is how you feel.

• The ideology of positive psychology will be introduced, i.e., what is going well in people's lives, strengths and weaknesses examined and the importance of increasing positive feelings and optimism.

• In the part on mindfulness, we are learning how to pause, to notice how we feel and what we are feeling. We are consciously examining our thoughts and feelings without making judgements.

• At the end of each class, participants are invited to deep relaxation with the methods of Yoga Nidra where peace and rest is emphasized in a warm environment. Benefits of the class:

• Increased capacity to deal with stress, anxiety and pressure in your daily life

• To change thought patterns and emotional responses.
