Course summary

Overview

Our MSc Psychological Therapy in Primary Care provides expert training in delivering evidence-based cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) to adults in primary care.

Delivered jointly by the University of Stirling and the University of Dundee, it is designed by NHS professionals and clinical academics to give you the clinical and professional skills you need to work as a clinical associate in applied psychology within the NHS.

Mental Health Services across the UK are facing a growing demand for therapeutic services to treat common mental health disorders. The NHS commitment to delivering evidence-based treatments means that the theoretical focus of this course is CBT. The course has been jointly devised by NHS clinicians and clinical academics at the University of Dundee Medical School and the University of Stirling's Division of Psychology. You’ll undergo training and clinical supervision within the NHS.

The course will develop your knowledge of the prevalence, diagnostic criteria, presentation and treatment of common mental health disorders within a CBT framework. You’ll develop the abilities to meet a range of performance targets safely, while responding constructively to clinical supervision and in line with professional and ethical guidelines.

Course objectives

Funded by National Health Service Education for Scotland (NES), this course is designed to extend your knowledge of the theoretical foundations of human behaviour and psychological disorders. It will help you develop the necessary competences to deliver evidence-based psychological therapies to treat common mental health disorders in adults in a primary care setting.
