This presents results of a survey of therapists who completed a CBT training course that was the first of its kind in the particular region. Following this initiative a network of qualified CBT practitioners has developed which continues to expand when previously the CBT resource was virtually non existent. Several former students of the course are part of these developments but many remained unaccounted for and work in other services and settings in or outside the region concerned. A survey of over 50 former students was conducted in an attempt to gauge their views on how CBT training may have affected practice in general and the extent to which CBT continues to have a role in current therapeutic practice. The survey covers the first five years of the course and hopefully highlights the impact of CBT training provision as well as some of the benefits and current problems encountered in practice by former students.
