I recently attended a training program as part of professional development. It was conducted in Chennai, India. The training was on “Cognitive Behaviour Therapy” (CBT). It was level 1 certificate course.
This course was conducted by Deborah Mc Nally from “Salford Cognitive Behaviour Therapy Centre, Manchester, UK” in collaboration with the “CARE Institute of Behavioural Sciences, Chennai, India.”
