Course overview

Our Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Anxiety Disorders PGCert produces psychological therapists who are competent in the practice of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for patients affected by psychological disorders. Its main focus is on the treatment of anxiety disorders.

This course offers CBT practitioner level training designed for healthcare and related professionals who have already completed introductory and/or intermediate CBT training (or equivalent) and have some supervised experience of providing CBT.

You gain: practical, intensive and detailed training to facilitate the development of competent CBT skills, to a defined standard; the necessary knowledge and attitudes to be an open-minded, informed and reflective CBT practitioner; a critical approach to the subject through engagement with relevant theory, models and evidence.

These skills equip you to become a creative independent CBT practitioner, in accordance with British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP) guidelines for good practice, and to contribute to the further development of CBT.

The course enables you to develop competency in CBT for anxiety disorders and become a skilled practitioner in this therapeutic approach. The focus is on treating patients with diagnosable anxiety disorders such as Social Phobia, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), etc. The emphasis is on high-intensity, individual CBT rather than guided self-help, psycho-education or lower intensity anxiety management.

Underpinning the course is a student centred learning approach to developing as a CBT therapist. You are required to conduct CBT therapy with anxiety-disordered patients in their host services. These patients will have moderate-severe anxiety symptoms appropriate for high-intensity psychological therapy.

This programme is intended for dental practitioners who want to develop competence in providing conscious sedation. The programme has been designed to allow you to gain experience of using inhalation sedation with nitrous oxide and oxygen, and midazolam. You will build your knowledge through distance learning modules and study days, while clinical skills will be developed during supervised clinical practice in Bristol. We aim to produce caring, knowledgeable and skilful practitioners who are competent in the provision of conscious sedation within the limits of the individual clinician.

Programme structure

This modular programme is divided in to three units: Local Anaesthesia, Anxiety Management and Clinical Conscious Sedation.

Local Anaesthesia
Pain and anxiety control are closely linked and treatments under sedation often need to be aborted because of inadequate local anaesthesia. The unit will update students in pharmacology and local anaesthetic techniques, introduce advanced local anaesthetic techniques and provide medical simulator training in the management of the complications of sedation.

Anxiety Management
This unit will provide students with a knowledge and critical understanding of the theoretical framework that underpins cognitive therapy, including self-help and behavioural approaches.

Clinical Conscious Sedation
This unit is designed to prepare those with no experience in conscious sedation to independent practice. It will include supervised clinical practice in Bristol, as well as distance learning and study days where practical skills will be introduced before beginning supervised clinical practice. The unit covers the syllabus on basic sedation techniques published in 2015 by the Intercollegiate Advisory Committee for Sedation in Dentistry.

This course is for people already working in a healthcare setting (in areas including psychiatry, clinical and forensic psychology, occupational therapy, social work, nursing, general medical practitioners) who are interested in delivering Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) in clinical settings. It will provide sufficient theoretical and skills training and can develop your career as a therapist and the service you provide.

CBT is the model of psychotherapy most tested by research trials for a range of mental and even physical disorders, ranging from depression, anxiety and phobias to eating disorders, schizophrenia and chronic pain. Healthcare professionals are increasingly required to demonstrate a flexible, multidisciplinary approach to make the best use of skills and resources. The NHS actively promotes provision of evidence-based management. CBT is the evidence-based psychotherapy par excellence. It can be effective as a stand-alone treatment and can also be used in conjunction with other medical or psychological treatments. The model is versatile and creative and its techniques can be used selectively in general medical, psychological and nursing practice, as well as informing whole courses of integrated treatment.

This course will help you refine your CBT skills, empower you to use the model in a range of clinical situations, and focus on the development of a respectful and pro-active relationship with patients. The therapeutic alliance is central to the delivery of CBT and the course will teach you to forge a positive collaborative relationship with patients as a means of improving and maintaining the patient’s mental health. The course is delivered by staff of NHS Lothian and Greater Glasgow.

Course Overview

This course provides you with the skills to asses and treat patients with brief, evidence-based psychological approaches for the treatment of mental health problems such as depression and anxiety. It is part of the Increasing Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) programme which trains Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners (PWPs) for NHS employment.

The Department of Health's IAPT programme is an innovative approach to address common mental health problems. Through this course you are trained as a practitioner to help those who experience depression and anxiety through use of evidence-based psychological therapies.

Low intensity treatments employ brief, cognitive behavioural therapy approaches through use of vehicles such as guided self-help, forming part of the stepped care system recommended for depression and anxiety disorders. After meeting and assessing a patient, the practitioner supports a therapeutic intervention to help patients with their problems and/or engage with other services that will facilitate them in their recovery.

After completing this course, you are eligible to apply for Band 5 PWP posts in NHS organisations. These posts also exist in the private and voluntary sectors.

It is designed to equip students with the core skills and competencies in order to undertake this role effectively.

This programme has been informed by national policy requirements to establish a new type of practitioner within the mental health workforce in primary care. Low-intensity workers will assess and
support patients with common mental health problems (principally anxiety and depression) in the self-management of their recovery. Students will be employed as Low Intensity Workers within a Primary Care Trust and will be released to attend one day per week at LSBU for the duration of the course.

Professional contacts/industry links:

This programme replaces the Graduate Workers in Mental Health and Primary Care that the Faculty has run for the last five years.

It is intended that formal accreditation under the IAPT scheme will be applied for in due course.
