This blog was written to support the session I run for GP Specialty Trainees in the North of Scotland.
During these sessions I hope participants will: –
- Be able to describe a cognitive behavioural model
- Know who it may benefit and how to access formal CBT
- Develop a framework for diagnosing, assessing and treating commomn mental health problems in GP.
I have a case (5 areas landscape john) to present and demonstrate how I use it and I will also ask the trainees to work collaboratively to complete a 5 Areas Sheet on a case of their own. I will offer advice to using this approach in general practice but also some of the referral options available for patients to access CBT locally and on the web.
