Event Details - Core Value Therapy Workshop

Title: Core Value Therapy Workshop
Type of Activity: Workshops & Seminars
Objective of Course / Workshop:

Many people describe their experience with emotions like internal thoughts and emotions that often produces mental-ill health. These negative consequences are often blamed on others and are very rarely owned by clients. To encourage a deeper sense of self-discovery for clients the ‘Core Value Therapy’ CVT was developed.

CVT aims to discover what drives our clients and dominates their thinking/feelings/emotions and behaviours. Core values are often hidden and discovering the core value must be unique to each client. When this occurs real change and deeper understanding can begin to dramatically change a client’s life.

Clients who have completed CVT improve their mental health, behaviour and their relationships.

Cases will be presented at the workshop to demonstrate a wide variety of beneficial changes that include anger management, reduction in suicide idealisation, self-harm, drug and alcohol recovery, parenting, personal and workplace relationships. CVT is ideally suited for therapists, counsellors, psychologists and psychiatrists.

Course / Workshop Outline:

The workshop includes:

  • How to help your clients unlock their core value using CVT model. This uses a strength base problem and solution focus approach and can dramatically improve mental health.
  • Enable the practitioner to discover their core value as a self-reflection. This is a voluntary process and is highly recommend. This allows you to discover what drives your thinking, behaviour, emotions and feelings.
