Cognitive Workshops has been running professional training in Canada since 1995. We generally run one two-day workshop in each of Ottawa, Toronto and Vancouver every year, usually in the fall. While these workshops are large-scale, they very much focus on practical, clinical tools for therapists, using a hands-on format involving numerous role-plays and exercises, accompanied by extensive handouts.
We are delighted to bring back Dr. Melanie Fennell to Canada in the fall of 2016. She will be presenting a two day workshop based on her best selling book Overcoming Self Esteem. Details posted in spring 2016.
Toronto – Nov 3-4, 2016

Melanie Fennell was a pioneer of cognitive therapy for depression in the UK, and as a research clinician in the Oxford University Dept of Psychiatry contributed the development and evaluation of cognitive models and treatment protocols for depression and anxiety disorders. She developed and directed the highly successful Oxford Diploma in Cognitive Therapy, the Oxford Diploma/MSc in Advanced Cognitive Therapy Studies, and the Oxford MSt in Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy. She has extensive experience of teaching and training both CBT and MBCT, and has a particular interest in cognitive therapy for depression and low self-esteem. In July 2002, she was voted “Most Influential Female UK Cognitive Therapist” by the membership of the BABCP, and in 2013 was awarded an Honorary Fellowship by the Association.
