Skip to 0 minutes and 8 secondsHello, and welcome to this online course in understanding cognitive behaviour therapy, anxiety, and depression. My name is Shirley Reynolds. I'm Director of the Charlie Waller Institute here at the University of Reading. The course is really aimed for a very wide audience. So this includes people who might want to seek therapy for themselves, their family and friends, or professionals who are interested in learning a little bit more about CBT and how it works. It's important to say at this point, though, that this is not a substitute for professional therapy. Over the next five weeks, we're going to examine what cognitive behaviour therapy is, how it works, and most importantly, how it helps people with anxiety and depression.
