A Career’s Worth Of Resources At Your Fingertips
It can take many years to build up a library of good quality, well designed resources. And as we all know, it can take many hours to create your own.
Let Psychology Tools do the creating and curating for you. We’ve built a huge online library of evidence-based primary materials that will support you at each step of your practice, so you can focus on being there for your clients and delivering great therapy, supported by expert tools grounded in a strong evidence base.
Resources for your client sessions
We all know that high quality resources are part of the professional toolkit for successful therapeutic outcomes. We have a range of different resource options for you to choose from to support your clients, depending on their specific needs. They can be used in session to support your interventions, between sessions for self-practice for the consolidation of new skills, or for psychoeducation.
Worksheets are forms for gathering information. Our worksheets can be used for clients to gather and record data outside sessions (a thought monitoring record, for example), or as forms that you can complete together in-session (such as a safety plan or therapy blueprint). Alternatively, you could start working on a worksheet with your client in-session, and encourage them to complete it outside the session (for example, a behavioral experiment).
CBT is as much a doing therapy as it is a talking therapy. Exercises are used to introduce new ways of thinking, acting and feeling to clients. They are an important part of our resource library and vital to your therapeutic toolkit. Our resources include both exercises that can be done with your clients in session and ones that can be given to complete out of session.
Our information handouts can be really useful if your clients simply don’t know enough about a problem, or if you need to offer corrective information when working towards addressing mis-appraisals and misinterpretations. Psychology Tools information handouts are concise, accurate and informative one-page introductions to a topic.
Guides and workbooks
There’s never enough time to cover everything in a session, especially when you’re helping clients to develop new skills. Our guides cover topic areas that are too large be distilled into a one-page resource. Typically covering skills development or more complex areas that require more information to be absorbed.
Guides are an effective way to help clients to understand the essential background to a topic. You can spend more time in-session to teach skills and how to implement them, so that your client can make progress faster.
As part of our commitment to providing a comprehensive library of resources to suit different learning styles and therapy tasks, we have developed audio resources for you to prescribe as part of your practice, or to be used as stand-alone interventions. Often suitable for transdiagnostic use, they cover a wide range of exercises, topics and techniques. Clients can also use them while on the move, using a phone or mobile device.
Our audio therapy resources have all been developed and professionally recorded by experienced clinical psychologists, so you can expect the same high quality as our written resources. We even provide scripts so that you can re-record exercises in your own voice.
… And resources for you too
Our range of materials isn’t just for your clients, they’re for you too. Practitioners benefit from case conceptualization tools and essential CBT disorder-specific models and psychological assessment tools. There are resources for assessment, formulation, intervention and evaluation stages, as well as materials for helping supervisees learn. Psychology Tools materials can help you at every part of your practice, as well as help you stay on model and develop strong theory-practice links.
Our aim isn’t just to make it easier to deliver great therapy, but to also create tools that help to enhance what you do.
We’re constantly working on growing our library and expanding your knowledge by creating new resources, articles and features. We even go back to update and improve older materials if the field has advanced since we created them. We’ll let you know every time something new is added so you can check it out.
