Our Founder, Marie Chellingsworth, created The CBT Resource as a social enterprise approach in response to the demand for better designed, expert led resources and protocols for practitioners; accessible on-site and online training access, a membership option to get over 40 hours of evidence-based national CPD per year and access to evidence-based patient resources and clinician's guides. Our award winning blog has been voted in the top 20 international CBT blogs for its content.
Paid annual members get voting rights to shape the development of the organisation and our events as well as being able to attend our annual conference as a member. All our profits go into creating more CPD events and clinical resources, as well as benefiting national mental health charity work by being able to provide support, resources and donations each year.
