Course summary

Overview

In year one, students receive direct teaching on research methodologies and the critical evaluation of research findings. They carry out an ‘audit’ within their clinical placement service and attend a series of lectures on evaluating clinical interventions. From the second year trainees, will undertake a research project in an area relevant to the child psychotherapy profession, fully supported by a supervisor. This programme has been created with an emphasis on the practical research skills that will be needed by a modern practitioner and designed specifically to be completed within four full-time academic years. In this integrated programme research thinking will sit alongside the clinical programme so that graduates will become able to use research to inform their clinical practice.

Careers

On completion of the Doctorate, applicants are eligible to work in the NHS or voluntary sector as child psychotherapists accredited by the Association of Child Psychotherapists. Some continue with academic and research work in parallel with this.
