About CBTwatch

CBTwatch is about the translation of the positive findings from randomised controlled trials of cognitive behaviour therapy  to routine practice. As such it is about the effectiveness of CBT rather than its efficacy. There is a great mismatch between the two. 

By way of example, of the 24,000 people labelled as having Post-traumatic Stress Disorder in NHS Taking Therapies in 2022-2023 and having just one assessment/treatment session  only 2% go on to have 2 or more treatment sessions. Using the Moving On After Trauma icon on this website the traumatised and their clinicians can access materials to engage in the reconstruction of their life.

This site offers not only a critique of current services but also a pathway forward.
