For those who don’t know, I have obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a Post-graduate certificate in Autism and Behavioural Science. So, I’ve learned briefly about Cognitive Behaviour Counselling and Cognitive Behaviour Therapies (CBT) but on my first day of class, I don’t know why but I can honestly say, I never thought of those things as Cognitive Behaviour concepts.
First day of class, we briefly touched upon all the therapies and theories that I believe we will be going through in class. Here’s a quick list:
- Classical Conditioning
- Cognitive-Behavioural Modification
- Multi-modal Therapy
- Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy
- Social Cognitive Therapy
- Self-management Therapy
Those are just some of the few broad topics my professor touched upon and ALL of those are ones I have touched upon in a few classes of mine in the past. I didn’t realize that they WERE cognitive behavioural therapies even though, I guess I should have realized that since the theories are very cognitive and behavioural. It was interesting to sort of get that epiphany today.
In other news, I will clarify this on the blog that whatever experiences I talk about on here is my OWN experiences. The classroom is a safe environment, which means what we talk about in the classroom stays in the classroom. I will never disclose any classmates information or experiences, only my own. This message will make a lot more sense in my next post.
Anyways, have you ever had an epiphany where you thought, why’d I never thought of that before? If so, leave a comment below and let me know. I’d love to hear what epiphanies people have had.
