Are You Training To Become A Mental Health Professional?

Psychology Tools
1 July 2020

As a student, the challenge of learning to become an effective therapist can feel overwhelming.

There’s so much to grasp and you want to do it all properly, while working out how everything links together. You may worry that you don’t understand the theories behind what you’re practicing, or that people can tell it’s the first time you’ve used an exercise.

You know it’s most effective to use high quality resources in your client sessions and for self-practice, but you have little money and no time to spend creating them. There are so many handouts that you need, but the task of sourcing them and building up your own library feels impossible. Despite this, you really want to do your best for your clients, giving them the right support to feel better and inspiring their confidence and trust.

We understand because we have been in your shoes. That feeling of being overwhelmed is one of the reasons we set up Psychology Tools – to make things a little easier. Our tools are designed to support you to deliver great therapy, helping you to learn more effectively and expand your practice.

With Psychology Tools as part of your resource toolkit you will:

Feel prepared for every client session

Have an instant evidence-based resource library at your fingertips. Choose from a wide variety of materials for your clients – homework tasks, between-session assignments, or self-practice – with our resource library of 450+ worksheets, exercises, handouts, guides, and therapy audio.

Our library also includes 22 manuals and workbooks from the Treatments That Work® series, authored by leading psychologists including David Barlow, Michelle Craske, and Edna Foa. Based on the principles of cognitive behavioral therapy, the books contain step-by-step procedures for delivering evidence-based interventions for a range of disorders, enabling you to confidently learn whole protocols.

As well as therapist guides, we also have client workbooks that contain all the resources your clients need for the programme.

Learn faster and understand more deeply

Our resources are all designed to help you create strong theory-practice links, facilitating more effective learning. Each resource includes theoretical context, which pays special attention to the theory underpinning our resources, and is fully referenced so you can build your knowledge and understanding, and apply this to your practice.

Build confidence

Feel secure in delivering psychoeducation or explaining concepts concepts to clients with the guidance included in our resources.

Designed for clinicians and trainees, each exercise, worksheet, and information handout has a professional version with everything you need to use each tool most effectively and in the best way for your clients.

As well as the resource and theoretical context, each PDF contains instructions for delivering the resource, suggested prompts to use in session, and full references. Some resources also include case examples and annotations where appropriate.

This guidance enables you to confidently use new materials, expanding your practice toolkit whilst knowing you’re following best practice. Full references mean you can learn more about areas you’re less familiar with, and with new materials and articles added all the time, there’s always more to learn.

Develop best practice

Our evidence-based resources help you stay on model and reduce therapist drift. Cognitive behavioral models and case conceptualization tools help you understand and treat client problems more effectively.

I find Psychology Tools to be an invaluable resource. Many clinicians gather effective, evidence-based materials to use in sessions over the course of their careers; as a beginning clinician without these materials, I find it very helpful to have a go-to resource full of helpful handouts and worksheets to use in sessions. It saves me a ton of time that would have otherwise been spent searching the internet for quality, evidence-based handouts. (Katie Vagnini, doctoral student in clinical health psychology at the University of Colorado Denver)

My experience with Psychology Tools has been great. Access to such practical and useful materials has helped me and my patients to maintain organized, action-based activities throughout the course of treatment. The site is well organized, making it easy to find the right materials when I need them. Furthermore, the collection of available resources helped introduce me to activities and methods I was not aware of. Psychology Tools is a wonderful resource for the developing clinician. (Keegan Walker, doctoral student in clinical health psychology at the University of Colorado Denver)
