Course Description

Hot topics in mental health are constantly emerging and evolving. Staying current in your knowledge and contributing to community conversations and support is critical to professional and personal development. Each year from September to June we will offer CBT Lunch and Learns. These 60 minute sessions will include a 45 minute presentation on a current trend, topic or issue in mental health followed by a 15 minute Q&A session. Lunch and Learns are offered remotely through Zoom.

The CBT Lunch and Learn series is not eligible for any discounts.

Perfectionism is insidious and creeps into our lives, robbing us of contentment, ease and balance.  It drives us to strive for impossible standards which leaves us feeling exhausted and frustrated. In this CBT Lunch and Learn we will discuss opening up to our imperfections and accepting and embracing our humanity… we may also challenge ourselves to leave some dirty dishes in the sink.

Sometimes we think that thinking something over and over and over and over and over will help us to accomplish a goal or solve a problem when, in actuality, it often leads us to feeling worn out and stuck.  In this CBT Lunch and Learn we will explore what drives unhelpful rumination and how we can move out of it in active and concrete ways.

Sometimes certain behaviours we use help us to achieve a certain feeling or relieve another feeling even though the behaviour itself is not entirely helpful or healthy. We can use elements of CBT to observe our behaviours and work towards healthier, longer lasting coping strategies.
