Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is an evidence-based effective therapeutic model widely used in treating mental health disorders such as depression and anxiety. In this course, students will explore Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and its historical and theoretical underpinnings. Students will understand the interventions and techniques used that assist in creating mental health and wellbeing.

CACCF Accreditation

Certified members of the CACCF require 40 CEU hours every two years to maintain their Certification(s). Members are encouraged to take pre-approved CEUs as they simply need to submit their certificates of completion together with their Re-certification Application when they are due for renewal.

Ashton College's Foundations in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy course is now listed as a pre-approved course with CACCF to satisfy the hours needed for recertification.

For more information, check out the Canadian Addiction Counsellors Certification Federation (CACCF) website.

Live Online Students

Ashton College offers education for all students with a unique online learning approach. A synchronous learning component provides real time interaction and immediate feedback. We use real time interactive sessions, breakout rooms, and screen-sharing. An asynchronous learning component allows students to work at their own pace. Our asynchronous learning materials include recorded real time lectures, online readings, and discussion forums. We encourage students, if possible, to use both components so as to enjoy interactivity and community of real-time learning as well as studying at their own pace. This approach ensures students have support and resources to achieve their educational goals.

For synchronous sessions, students need to have a fully functional computer system with a webcam, speakers and microphone or headset and headphones, along with a reliable high-speed internet connection. Though the classes can be accessed using smartphones and tablets, we recommend using a laptop or desktop computer for a better learning experience.

This program/course does not require approval by the Private Training Institutions Branch (PTIB) of the Ministry of Post-Secondary Education and Future Skills. As such, PTIB did not review the program/course.
