Certificate in CBT – Theoretical Understanding & Skills


Short Course


Eight weeks

Validated by





Dublin Main Campus

NFQ Level


This certificate is specifically designed to raise students' awareness of the fundamental theoretical and practical applications of Cognitive Behavioural approaches in interpersonal care.

It will emphasise the importance of structured assessment and interventions based on theoretical understandings of CBT, as well as its evolution and traditions. It intends to heighten awareness of the importance of such theories in the delivery of professional practice in areas such as Counselling & Psychotherapy.

This course focuses on the development of professional skills and does not sit on the national framework; however, it leads to an ICHAS College Certificate.
