Course summary

Why choose this course

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) helps people to understand and manage their own thoughts and feelings in their daily lives. On our PGDip Psychological Intervention (CBT) course, you’ll learn how to effectively deliver CBT, to help patients improve their emotional and mental wellbeing. This course is open to both funded and self-funded applicants with a mental health background.

Our teaching has been designed to meet standards set by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence, and your clinical work placement will give you hands-on experience, to put theory into practice. Our teaching is underpinned by the following core NHS values:

  • Commitment to quality of care
  • Compassion
  • Everyone counts
  • Improving people’s lives
  • Respect and dignity for all
  • Working together for patients.

On successful completion of this course, you’ll meet the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies’ (BABCP) minimum training standards for the practice of CBT, meaning you’re eligible to apply for accreditation and work as a High Intensity CBT Practitioner.

What you will study

We'll challenge you with current issues in therapeutic practice, and you’ll benefit from clinical presentations and input from people using CBT services. You'll be exposed to a range of learning experiences, ensuring theory is integrated with practice.

You’ll learn about assessment and formulation for common mental health problems, and the CBT framework used to treat these. You’ll explore some of the challenges and dilemmas in working with more complex, chronic or co-morbid presentations of anxiety and depression, and you’ll be introduced to the theory, research and practice of some of the newer third wave approaches to CBT.

You’ll receive expert clinical supervision and learn how to use this effectively within a professional and ethical framework. You'll also be supported to apply CBT to your own experiences as a therapist to enhance your practice. Upon completion of the course, you’ll be a confident and competent therapist, able to provide effective, informed psychological treatment.
