A pilot research study led by Professor Margaret Maxwell of the University of Stirling and funded in Scotland by the Chief Scientists Office (CSO) shows that the online course with short support from a community-based farming support worker is superior to an active control (telephone support from the RSABI farming charity). (Research Paper submitted).

This is a self-directed online course for use by people living in farming communities with common issues such as low mood, stress, low confidence, low assertion, poor sleep and more.
Each module typically takes 15-20 minutes or so to complete.

The core sessions of the course provide many of the key CBT-based skills needed for life change.

How often should I complete a module or how many?
We recommend you work through all the modules, completing one every few days will allow you the opportunity to put into practice what you are learning.

Using the worksheets: practical worksheets can be completed by printing them on paper, or by answering the questions electronically if you prefer such as in notes on your phone. The worksheets help you apply what you are learning, make plans and review your progress.

Working with a support worker: Some people using this course may be receiving support from an IAPT or other community mental health worker, nurse, OT, physio or other health or social care worker including Third sector staff or volunteers. If so, use this support to help you stay on track, get answers to any questions, and encouragement to apply what you are learning.

LLTTF is our most popular course and is available as a self-directed online course. A license is also available to provide access to Supporter Resources to deliver a series of classes: The Living life to the full (LLTTF TM) course.

Translations: Multiple language (>15) versions of books, and live classes are available.

How to provide access to clients: Practitioners/supporters can deliver the self-directed course by purchasing single use log in codes individually to pass to your patients/clients. Or a group code valid for, 10, 50, or an agreed number of patients/clients if you prefer.

Terminology: LLTTF is designed to teach evidence-based CBT life skills in an accessible language.

• Understanding why I feel as I do (self-formulation)
• Planning effective change (SMART goals)
• Changing upsetting thinking (negative automatic thoughts)
• Doing activities that improve how you feel (behavioural activation)

Dr Chris Williams is Emeritus Professor of Psychosocial Psychiatry at the University of Glasgow, Scotland, a Fellow of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, and Past-President of the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP). His main area of interest is making Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) approaches accessible to all.

Course development: The content has been developed with input by farmers and farming based community workers as part of a CSO-funded research pilot/feasibility study led by Professor Margaret Maxwell at the University of Stirling. This included qualitative interviews with members of the farming community and workers. This has shaped the content of the course, which has been revised and updated with revised content and imagery to engage famers and their families.
