Course summary

Overview

Anxiety and depression are among the most common mental health disorders experienced by all ages. Psychological recovery is greatly enhanced when the individual receives the correct treatment. Cognitive Behaviour Psychotherapy (CBP) is currently the key recommended psychological treatment for these conditions. It is essential that practitioners are prepared with the necessary knowledge, skills and attitudes to deliver CBP competently. This course is written to the requirements of the lead organisation in the UK which sets the competency standards for Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy. The teaching at the University and with Clinical colleagues in placement areas is of the highest standard. This course will fundamentally alter the way clinicians work in practice.?

The Postgraduate Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy is a new programme for September 2019 entry, jointly offered by the School of Nursing and Midwifery and the School of Social Sciences, Education and Social Work. It is a rationalisation of two separate postgraduate diplomas in CBP/CBT which were previously offered by the two Schools. The programme provides all of the training necessary to contribute to an individual becoming accredited as a CBP therapist by the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP).

Career Prospects
