Update your CBT training

It is vital that therapists of all disciplines continually update their training with regard to Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. However, as we all know, everything is changing, at pace. And hopefully the majority of the changes we see and experience are positive. It seems that just about every day we read of new developments in AI, and how it will impact on almost everyone’s life within just a few years. But, we will have to wait and see...

In therapy things changed around 60 years ago, when Aaron Beck first developed Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. Just ten years later, the American psychotherapist and psychologist, Dr. Albert Ellis, created and developed Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT) in New York. Since then, REBT like CBT has benefited from ongoing research along with a wide level of general acceptance. Some academics describe REBT as a ‘smarter, more effective approach to treatment’ than CBT.  It is of course true that the two approaches have much in common. But it is also true that in the last fifty years not much has changed.

To stay informed and up-to-date on developments in the field of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy it is recommended that therapists explore and understand the dynamics of the new, some would say, ‘elegant’ version of CBT that is TCBT, or Pause Button Therapy. Professor Philip Zimbardo, of Stanford University is just one of the academics to recognise and endorse the approach. TCBT has also featured in several European university psychology conferences.

Both therapists and their patients/clients have welcomed TCBT. But just why is it proving so popular? Most believe it is because the approach is results focused. The TCBT client experiences very fast and much appreciated progress. And, as a result, the therapist benefits from seeing satisfied, rapidly improving client groups. Additionally, the therapist can experience an elevated level of positive feedback and outcomes. So, what is it? TactileCBT (TCBT) is a 'twist' an 'add on' or possibly an 'alternative' to traditional Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. In a nutshell it's a therapy that comes with an interactive tool. Consequently, unlike traditional Cognitive Behaviour Therapy which is passive, PBT is tactile.  Read on this website just why so many practitioners around the world have endorsed it.

Of course it is always advisable for both new therapists in training and other more established professionals to also continue to consult reputable sources. This includes scientific journals, professional organisations, conferences, and books by experts in the field. These sources will normally provide the most current and reliable information on the latest research, techniques, and best practices in CBT.

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.
