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.

These include an IAPT workers, nurses, OT’s, physios or other workers 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.

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.
Please note: the class version has not been modified for this population group, and the course lead would need to ask questions and give examples to make the course applicable and relevant to parents attending a class programme. The online self-directed course highlights the areas seen as important by staff and parents that would facilitate this.

Translations: Multiple language (>15) versions of the standard LLTTFTM adult 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)
