Accredited cognitive-behavioural therapy course now offered to Moldovan mental health professionals

December 5, 2016

Through the Reform of Mental Health Services project in Moldova, a new capacity building initiative has been launched through the project in collaboration with the Romanian College of Psychologists.

Cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), an evidence-based treatment for a variety of mental health problems, is a structured therapy requiring extensive training in both theory and practice. At present, such a program is not offered in Moldova. The project has facilitated the opportunity for psychologists and psychiatrists to enrol in an accredited CBT programme in Romania through the project. This activity is significant as it is the first-time training in this therapy has been offered as an accredited program for Moldovan practitioners. This activity is expected to strengthen mental health service provision now and to build an in-country pool of CBT practitioners and experts in Moldova and build a more diverse and sustainable mental health workforce in Moldova.
