The mission of the School and Clinical Child Psychology (SCCP) program is to provide students with theoretical, research, and professional training in preparation for leadership in psychological practice with children, adolescents, and families in school, mental health, private practice, and research settings. The program follows a scientist-practitioner model and is designed to train students to conduct basic and applied research and provide professional training in psychological assessment, therapy, and other psychosocial and instructional interventions, professional consultation, and prevention.

Opportunities are available for research and professional work with infants, young children, adolescents, adults, and families. The degrees are intended to meet the academic requirements of the College of Psychologists of Ontario (CPO) for registration as a Psychological Associate (MA) or Psychologist (PhD).

The curriculum of the SCCP program is designed to establish a strong foundation of core knowledge and skills early in the program, with students free to specialize later on. The program reflects a mix of courses and training opportunities.

A systemic approach is the basis for the training that is provided in assessment and intervention. The knowledge and skills necessary for the practice of school psychology and clinical child psychology overlap considerably, and experience in school and clinical settings complement and enhance each other. Therefore, over the course of the program of study, students are required to undertake practica in both school and clinical child settings.

This course is for you if you’re a Psychology graduate with an interest in clinical training, and you want to strengthen your credentials for the competitive entry process. The course is run jointly by the Department of Psychology and the Coventry-Warwick Clinical Psychology Doctorate programme. Currently, we can only consider you if you’re a UK/EU student with a Psychology degree that provides Graduate Basis for Chartership (British Psychological Society). This policy reflects that UK doctoral training in clinical psychology is available primarily to UK/EU citizens.

You will study a range of modules on clinical research methods, evidence-based practice in adult, older adult and child/adolescent populations and clinical case analysis. You will also have the opportunity to do a six-month NHS placement as an honorary assistant psychologist, which is particularly valuable if you’re
considering a career in the clinical profession.

The majority of our graduates proceed to NHS assistantships and clinical PhD studentships. Many of our postgraduates have progressed to DClin courses, including Coventry-Warwick, Institute of Psychiatry (Kings), Oxford, Manchester and Trinity College Dublin.

Course overview

This course is designed for Psychology graduates who plan to apply for admission to doctoral training programmes in Clinical Psychology, and are in the process of strengthening their credentials for the competitive entry process.

The taught components of the course include modules on research methods tailored to clinical applications, evidence-based practice in adult, older adult, and child/adolescent populations, learning disabilities, and clinical case analysis. Teaching provision is shared between academics with research interests in the relevant topics and practising clinicians with current experience in Psychology services within the NHS.

The practical component of the course is a unique 6-month research/audit placement in a local NHS trust that maintains a training relationship with our doctoral programme. Students are assigned to placements, where they will work with Clinical Psychologists on clinical audit and research, as applicable to the specific setting of the placement. On-site supervision is provided by a clinical supervisor. Every effort is made to match students' interests with the available placement opportunities. The formal output of the placement is a written dissertation comprising a literature review and a report of the research work carried out during the placement, to be completed under the guidance of an academic supervisor.

Teaching and Assessment

Teaching consists of lectures and seminars plus additional workshops. You will have an average of 8 – 10 hours of lectures and 4 hours of seminars per week in Term 1. Assessment is mainly by submission of assignments and a class test.

In Term 2 you will be out on placement for 3 days a week. This will enable you to gain practical experience of working with Clinical Psychologists within NHS trusts. You will be assigned to 6 month long placements during which you will complete 2 pieces of academic work.

NOTE: This course will not lead to a license to practice as a Clinical Psychologist. It is a qualification that will significantly strengthen students' academic and work experience credentials required for entry into the professional doctoral training that is required for licensed clinical practice.

[Overview]

The MSc Integrative Psychotherapy, leading to professional registration with UKCP in Psychotherapy or Psychotherapeutic Counselling, is suitable if you are a graduate and wish to achieve professional registration in psychotherapy or psychotherapeutic counselling. UKCP operates separate registers for practitioners who work with young people and adults, and successful completion of this programme leads to entry onto either of these specialist registers. A 60 credit Graduate Certificate in Integrative Counselling Skills is also available to enable you to develop your clinical skills in psychotherapy, and provides a bridge to the MSc programme for applicants without prior clinical qualifications.

[What does the course cover?]

Programme content is based on the professional requirements for either child or adult practitioners, but both specialisms also share certain common components. To meet UKCP accreditation requirements, you will develop a portfolio to evidence your skills and learning throughout the programme. This portfolio will form the basis of your registration with UKCP, via Newman’s professional accrediting partner, the Northern Guild for Psychotherapy. In line with professional requirements governing training duration, students with no previous clinical experience could qualify as psychotherapeutic counsellors after 3 years of study and as psychotherapists after 4 years, subject to completion of all course components. Training components include clinical placements, supervision, personal therapy, and mental health placements.

[Selection of modules]

Content is differentiated by client group and need, but topic areas across all programme options include:
• Theories and Theoretical Integration
• Skills and Therapeutic Process
• Clinical Practice and Advanced Clinical Practice
• Human Development
• Perspectives on Mental Health
• Legal and Ethical Issues
• Context, Co-operation and Multi-agency Working
• Neurophysiology
• Mental Health: Wellbeing and Distress
• Research, Evaluation and Monitoring
• Dissertations (for the award of MSc)

The programme is offered on a part-time basis, and includes a substantial number of professional components. An 80% attendance requirement is therefore linked to professional competence and fitness to practice. Learning will be via lectures, workshops, practical activities, online discussions and self-study. Attendance will include some weekday and Saturday components.

[Assessment]

Modules will be assessed via a variety of methods including traditional essays, case presentations, personal reflections, journals, and psychotherapy session recordings. The programme as a whole will be assessed via portfolio, based on professionally specified learning outcomes. The final academic component will be a research dissertation.

[Special features]

• UKCP is the key accrediting body in psychotherapy in the UK. Both Child and Adult routes lead to professional registration. The Child programme is one of a small number nationally, and the only programme in the Midlands that leads to professional registration with UKCP in Child Psychotherapy and Counselling
• The programme offers a unique combination of academic and professional qualifications. These include two ‘interim’ awards - Graduate Certificate in Integrative Counselling Studies (level 6) and a PG Cert in Integrative Psychotherapy Studies (level 7), as well as four academic awards leading to professional accreditation, namely: ◦ PG Dip in Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counselling (adult) (level 7) – leading to professional registration on the adult register as a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor
◦ PG Dip in Integrative Child and Adolescent Psychotherapeutic Counselling (level 7) – leading to professional registration on the child register as a Child Psychotherapeutic Counsellor
◦ MSc in Integrative Psychotherapy (adult), (level 7) – leading to professional registration on the adult register as a Psychotherapist
◦ MSc in Integrative Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy (level 7) – leading to professional registration on the child register as a Child Psychotherapist

Completion of additional specified components can lead to professional registration both as a child and an adult practitioner

• Personal and professional development is a key component of psychotherapy training, and occurs continuously throughout the period of study. As part of this, you will undertake personal therapy throughout the period of training. Personal therapy is self-funded.
• You will be required to gain a total of 450 supervised practice hours, which will be completed as part of your course, enabling you to proceed directly to professional registration upon completion of the course.
