Is CBT a clinically effective intervention in work settings? A new clinical study

Research Briefing

Keywords: CBT, workplace well-being, well-being, cognitive behavioural therapy, absenteeism

NICE – the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence – in the UK recommends CBT or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy as part of a range of therapies and interventions to help people with issues that lead to frequent short-term absences or long-term sick absence from work due to mental health issues. Across the UK, approximately half of long-term sickness absences are due to mental health issues, costing over £26bn a year in the UK alone. Surprisingly however, there are virtually no randomised clinical trials or studies about the effectiveness of CBT in work-place contexts for mental health issues.
