Course summary

OVERVIEW

Our Postgraduate Diploma (PgDip) Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) offers training for mental health professionals who wish to use CBT in their practice.

CBT approaches and interventions are recognised as a major contributor to psychological treatment. Our course is suitable for a wide range of professionals such as:

  • nurses
  • social workers
  • occupational therapists
  • physiotherapists
  • doctors
  • psychologists
  • counsellors

Our PgDip will provide you with foundation skills in CBT core models and interventions, and you will develop the necessary knowledge, skills, attitudes and clinical competencies to become a competent and safe CBT practitioner.

Professional Approval and Accreditation

The Postgraduate Diploma is a Level 2 accredited course with the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP). There are two stages of BABCP accreditation - Provisional and Full. This Level 2 course satisfies your application for provisional membership of the BABCP in that it guarantees that you meet the minimum training standards (MTS) required to become a fully accredited CBT therapist or high intensity worker.

Teaching & Assessment

Teaching has been specifically designed to provide quality training combining skills training through role play and demonstration with more traditional teaching of the relevant theory.

There is a combination of:

  • face-to-face lecture workshop delivery
  • supervision
  • innovative virtual teaching learning opportunities utilising the Scotia Medical Observation and Training System (SMOTS lab.)
