Meet our trainers
James Bennett-Levy is Professor in Mental Health and Psychological Wellbeing at the University of Sydney’s University Centre for Rural Health. He is a recognised leader in the field of therapist training. He has pioneered a self-experiential approach to therapist training, known as self-practice/self-reflection (SP/SR), and his research has provided an empirical basis for self-practice approaches to training.
Following three earlier clinical books (the Oxford Guides to Behavioural Experiments in Cognitive Therapy, 2004 … to Low Intensity Interventions, 2010 … and to Imagery in Cognitive Therapy, 2011), he has been Series Editor for the Guilford Press’ Self-Practice/Self-Reflection series, for which he has co-written Experiencing CBT from the Inside Out: A Self-Practice Self-Reflection Workbook for Therapists (Bennett-Levy et al., 2015) and Experiencing Compassion Focused Therapy from the Inside Out: A Self-Practice Self-Reflection Workbook for Therapists (Kolts, Bell, Bennett-Levy & Irons, 2018).
