This programme in Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy (CBP) will focus on the evidence based treatment of depression and anxiety disorders.

The central aim of the course is to provide students with a clear understanding of cognitive-behavioural concepts, models, and methods. It is anticipated that those completing the programme will be able to use what they have learned in a safe and effective way in order to enhance the efficacy of their psychotherapeutic interventions.

The course is fully accredited by the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP) as an IAPT level 2 course.

Students need a core profession relating to mental health or can go through the KSA route and provide a portfolio as outlined on the BABCP website. KSA requirements must be met if candidates do not have a core profession recognised by the BABCP.

Students will be required to attend clinical supervision and teaching sessions one day a week (day to be confirmed), so will need to organise this with current employers.

For the MSc, in year two students undertake one of the following:

A professional development portfolio project. This option requires the student to identify an area of their work and where they wish to develop their expertise. Through critically appraising published material, attending teaching days and refining and developing their own professional skills, students will develop a portfolio of evidence on how this has influenced their practice. This innovative option will allow students to develop expert clinical skills that will assist them when helping more difficult patients and developing advanced clinical skills.

CBT is recommended in the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidelines as part of the stepped-care approach. The approach works to alleviate symptoms and have a positive impact on social inclusion, employment and productivity. Practitioners will work closely with other agencies to assess and maximise employment opportunities for each client.

The programme prepares you to provide high-intensity CBT within Improving Access to Psychological Therapies services. It adheres to the national curriculum published by the Department of Health (2008).

The programme will have a cognitive-behavioural theoretical base with preference for approaches with the soundest evidence and where cognitive and behavioural techniques are integrated in therapy and fully compliant with High Intensity IAPT curriculum. In addition to providing practical intensive and detailed skills training to facilitate skill development to a defined standard of competency, the programme will aim to increase your knowledge base of therapy and research in CBT and to promote a critical approach to the subject. It will aim to equip you to become a skilled and creative independent High Intensity therapist, in accordance with BABCP guidelines for good practice and to contribute to the further development of CBT.

The programme will provide opportunities for you to develop and demonstrate knowledge, understanding and skills in the following areas:

1. To develop practical competency in Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy for common psychiatric disorders such as depression and anxiety
