CBT Therapist Training Manuals and Resources.

At the outset, let us say that CBT is now over fifty years old. Additionally, a number of new upgrades to the approach are developing and being introduced into the arena. Consequently, one new approach that has gained considerable media interest is TactileCBT (TCBT), or Pause Button Therapy. A number of academics around the world have endorsed the new approach, including professor Zimbardo, of Stanford University, and professor Dryden, of Goldsmiths London University. As a result, it is gaining an ever growing acceptance in therapeutic practices.

Cognitive-behaviour therapy is a widely used therapeutic approach. This approach focuses on identifying and changing patterns of thoughts and behaviours that contribute to psychological difficulties. It is an evidence-based treatment for various mental health issues, such as anxiety disorders, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and more.

The PBT book is an effective 'Self Help' tool for those who wish to introduce change into their lives. However, it seems that clients who are working alone, without the input of a therapist, may require further assistance. We are now pleased to be able to offer the Client Work Book, which covers in detail:

  • How Pause Button Therapy/TactileCBT can change your life.
  • The alternative choices and actions you have.
  • How to develop an emotional connection.
  • Introduction to Time Perspective, and its importance.
  • The role of thoughts
  • Encourages the recording of your therapy journey.

PBT Wristbands and CardsPBT wristbands and cards
PBT Wristbands and Cards

The PBT cards are of 'credit card' size and quality. Each one has a slot cut out, so you easily fit it on to your key ring. Or alternatively, you can keep it in your credit card wallet. The PBT embossed silicone wristbands are available in two sizes, small and large, and are in the pack with the PBT card.

As stated in the PBT book, we have found that clients generally benefit from the tactile use of the cards and wristbands. However, many therapists globally have informed us that the use of any, locally purchased wristbands, can deliver a similar result. The price of a pack of two cards, and two wristbands (one large and one small) is just £8.95 inclusive of postage and packing, within Europe. The cost inclusive of postage and packaging for international clients is £12.95. Clients are also encouraged to consider buying the Client Work Book; details are above. Therapists, or organisations, requiring multiple cards and wristbands, can contact us for pricing variations.

Pause Button Therapy is a proven, innovative and interactive new therapy technique that allows you to do exactly this, empowering you to break free of negative habits and unconscious responses.
