Latest CBT Certification. There are several well-established and widely recognised certifications in the field of CBT. Below we list the four principle examples. But first, let us confirm what you may already know. Staying up to date and aware of the latest developments within CBT has never been easy.

Moving at Pace

Like many other interventions, the therapy is developing and moving forward ‘at pace’. Aaron Beck first developed the original Cognitive Behaviour Therapy more than fifty years ago. Sadly, however, a considerable amount of the current training available tends to focus on many of the historical techniques. Latest CBT Certification.

Artificial Intelligence

Unfortunately, the wide-ranging and rapid developments of CBT means that a number of new developments and general improvements are not always disseminated to the profession as frequently as you might realise. To be fair, they are springing up almost in a ‘heartbeat’. Many articles suggest that a number of these developments are a direct result around the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology, reviewing academic papers. As we said above, it is a fact that this and other developments are not always incorporated in to the CBT training being offered.

One new approach that has received global acclaim is TactileCBT. It can be described as being experiential. It is this experiential quality of TactileCBT that has set it apart from other approaches and makes it so effective. For the client, the experience is emotional, connected and meaningful. The therapy dramatically enhances motivation and the general commitment of the client to therapy. In their minds, a myriad of processes are occurring. As a result, their thoughts are triggering emotional and physical responses, deepening their mental processing and forging a set of newly interlinked neural connections.

So What is Tactile CBT

TactileCBT also referred to as Pause Button Therapy has received global acclaim. Professor Zimbardo of Stanford University and Professor Dryden of Goldsmiths University in London have both approved and praised it. TactileCBT is a new fresh approach to therapy, maybe the first upgrade to CBT for over fifty years. The therapy empowers people, allowing them to cognitively press pause and freeze time. And then, maybe for the first time in their lives, they can take a few seconds, or minutes, to really consider the consequences of the actions they are about to take. Subsequently, they can step back into the 'now' and make a more informed choice.

What if they could Freeze Time!

Think about how different it would be if our patients/clients could occasionally just pause – freeze time like they were watching a movie for a few moments, then really consider the consequences of the actions they were about to take? It would be refreshing, maybe life changing.

Imagine if they cognitively "paused" for a second to think how things might turn out differently? Would they snap at their husband or wife so sharply? Or shout at their child when he or she is winding them up? Would their child think twice about bullying in the playground? Maybe a young gang member would think of the consequences of their actions if they pulled a knife? How many people have written a text message, pressed 'Send' then a minute later wished that maybe they had thought it through first? You can read below, and on the other pages of this website, about how to gain a sound introduction to the therapy.

PBT Client Work Book

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.
