Course summary

Our Postgraduate Certificate (PGCert) in Promoting Psychological Wellbeing gives you the chance to develop your skills in evidence-based, low-intensity cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) interventions for common mental problems. You’ll be able to gain the accreditation you need to practice as a Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner (PWP).

This course will provide you with a thorough grounding in the theory, evidence base and practice of low-intensity psychological therapy for common mental health problems. You’ll focus on developing your clinical skills in Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT)-approved methods, including behavioural activation, exposure and habituation, panic management, cognitive restructuring, sleep management, problem solving and medical concordance.

Improving access to those services which can effectively treat people who are experiencing common mental health problems will have a positive impact on the health and wellbeing of the population. Primary care is now the cornerstone of the NHS and needs to be able to meet the growing demands placed upon it.

By offering practitioners the opportunity to develop and enhance their skills in low-intensity interventions and guided self-help for common mental health issues, this course is aims to support a skilled workforce that can effectively meet the changing needs in primary healthcare.
