MiCBT Applied Course – accelerated


AU$ Early Bird available until 14 August

*Early career therapists currently in their supervised practice or in the first two years of autonomous practice
** Retake/Refresher is only for therapists retaking an MiCBT Institute Applied Course. 

This online Applied Course is an accelerated learning opportunity to expand your MiCBT skills.  It is specifically designed for mental health therapists who have completed the Foundation Course and wish to advance their ability to implement MiCBT skills in their clinical practice but cannot undertake the 12-week-long Applied Course.

This week’s class will guide you to prepare important bases for a successful programme. You will learn to set a therapy contract with clients, describe the MiCBT model, and teach them the pre-mindfulness relaxation method. This session includes:

  • Introduction of each participant
  • Planning the implementation of the program, setting goals and discussing professional and ethical matters
  • Explaining the four stages of MiCBT to clients
  • Setting a therapy contract.
  • Setting and explaining this week’s homework for therapists and clients (Stage 1: Progressive Muscle Relaxation and mindfulness of the body)
  • Introduction and review of MiCBT theory, course of treatment, and session structure
  • Implementing Stage 1: 
    • Delivering an effective therapy contract
    • Treatment engagement by offering a sound rationale for MiCBT
    • Delivering an effective rationale for each of the four stages
    • Case conceptualization and treatment planning
    • Addressing client challenges in practicing twice daily
    • Identifying growing insight
    • Differentiating pathology from increased awareness of symptoms
  • Implementing Stage 2:
    • Exposure methods with clients
    • Addressing trauma memories by adapting the practice – including demonstration of interoceptive exposure with traumatised clients
  • Implementing Stage 3:
    • Decreasing conflict avoidance and improving communication and confidence
    • Interpersonal exercises and role-play with clients
  • Implementing Stage 4:
    • Teaching relapse prevention accurately and effectively
    • Teaching clients non-attachment to the therapist and ending therapy
    • Measuring progress: behavioural, interpersonal, and psychometric methods
  • Three x 90-minute follow-up group supervision sessions attended on an as-needed basis.
