Low Intensity CBT Workbooks

In recognition of our psychological treatment expertise, Cedar is now the sole commissioned provider of NHS Talking Therapies (previously known as IAPT) training in the South West. We have worked in collaboration with key professionals to develop LICBT workbooks for Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners (PWP) to support whilst working with patients.

Workbooks developed as part of research programmes and for wider use are also provided on this page.

All workbooks are freely available for individual use in clinical practice where a treatment fee is not payable.
