Our Cognitive Behavioural Therapy PGDip produces psychological therapists who are competent in the practice of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for patients affected by psychological disorders. It focuses predominantly on the treatment of depression and anxiety disorders.

The 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 will 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. As a graduate of this course you are eligible for practitioner accreditation with BABCP through Standard or Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) curriculum routes.

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.

The Diploma extends into the psychological treatment of major depression and specialist CBT applications. You will work with depressed patients who are more likely to have complex and recurrent difficulties. Your work on supervised cases will cover a broad range of disorders and complex conditions.

Facilities

The School of Psychology is based on the University campus in the Ridley Building. You will benefit from seminar rooms and meeting spaces, as well as excellent practical facilities for carrying out experiments.

Additional facilities for psychological research are available in:
-The Institute of Neuroscience for comparative and neuroscience approaches
-The Institute of Health and Society for health psychology, and development and disability
-Culture Lab for human–computer interaction
-The School of Education, Communication and Language Sciences for disorders of language
