Course summary

This exciting programme in Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy (CBP) focuses on the evidence based treatment of depression and anxiety disorders.

Overview

This programme in Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy (CBP) will focus on the evidence based treatment of depression and anxiety disorders.

The central aim of the course is to provide students with a clear understanding of cognitive-behavioural concepts, models, and methods. It is anticipated that those completing the programme will be able to use what they have learned in a safe and effective way in order to enhance the efficacy of their psychotherapeutic interventions.

The course is fully accredited by the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP) as an IAPT level 2 course.

Students need a core profession relating to mental health or can go through the KSA route and provide a portfolio as outlined on the BABCP website. KSA requirements must be met if candidates do not have a core profession recognised by the BABCP.

Students will be required to attend clinical supervision and teaching sessions two days a week (Wednesdays and Thursdays), so will need to organise this with current employers.

Careers

The programme is open to people working in mental health and social care, and associated independent sector agencies. Students will normally require a first degree in a related subject or demonstrate equivalence and an ability to study at level 4.

The course will enable students to develop their knowledge and practice of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) skills to allow them to function as CBT (high intensity) practitioners.

Completion of the Diploma or MSc programme will entirely go towards meeting the requirements of the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP) for the training element of practitioner accreditation. However, it is very important for individual students who are seeking accreditation to ensure that they will fully meet all requirements, which are available at the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies website.
