Free 10-min CBT e-learning 

Dr Lee David, who presented her excellent 10-minute CBT session in September 2019, has developed a FREE e-learning resource covering Emotional Wellbeing during Covid-19.

The first section of the module reviews the most common emotional reactions to the Covid-19 pandemic experienced by health professionals and the general public, and delivers some quick tips and brief strategies for coping effectively during and after the crisis situation. The second section is now available - again, completely free of charge - and includes a series of steps for emotional wellbeing and resilience known as 'FACE-COVID', which are based on CBT, acceptance and commitment therapy, mindfulness and compassion-focused therapy.  The two-hour module is divided into ten-minute videos and brief mindfulness practices so you can dip in and out to suit your schedule.
