We offer Postgraduate training programmes in Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapies and Approaches at Certificate, Diploma and Masters level. Read more
We offer Postgraduate training programmes in Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapies and Approaches at Certificate, Diploma and Masters level. These are aimed at developing competence in established evidence-based applications, especially for the prevention of relapse in recurrent major depression, but also for clients in a range of different settings including physical and mental healthcare and education.

Within mental health settings Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) as a treatment for preventing relapse from depression is becoming increasingly adopted. The use of mindfulness-based treatments for other conditions and in a wider range of settings outside of healthcare is also on the increase. In this programme you will develop a foundational base of the theory and research surrounding MBCT and other Mindfulness-based Approaches (MBA). You will have considerable opportunity for developing and reflecting on a personal mindfulness practice. This foundation lays the basis for continuing on to the Postgraduate Diploma year.

Train with experts

Each of our postgraduate training programmes in Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapies and Approaches maintain an in depth focus on the underpinning theory and research, enhanced by the work carried out in the Mood Disorders Centre (http://www.exeter.ac.uk/mooddisorders/ ) ; a partnership between the University of Exeter and the National Health Service. The Centre has been offering MBCT as part of its clinical services since 2002. In addition to the training delivered by experts from the Mood Disorders Centre with an international profile in developing, researching and teaching mindfulness-based approaches, teaching is enhanced by external tutors skilled in MBCT and Mindfulness-based interventions.

The programmes have been set up and are run in collaboration with Gaia House (http://gaiahouse.co.uk/about ) ; a centre for meditation, enquiry and compassion where you will attend retreats to cultivate your own personal mindfulness practice. You will benefit from the integral involvement of experienced Buddhist teachers exploring the lineage of mindfulness in Buddhist Psychology, and the teachers at Gaia House.

Our training places you at the heart of the community in a region with one of the largest networks of mindfulness practitioners and Buddhist teachers in the country.

PGCert Psychological Therapies Practice

This programme aims to update you with the latest research and theory in MBCT/MBA particularly drawing on the work within the Mood Disorders Centre at the University of Exeter. In this programme we aim to detail the knowledge underpinning MBCT/MBA from a psychological and Buddhist perspective.

We aim to provide you with the experiential knowledge of a personal mindfulness practice and how this is fundamental to teaching MBCT/MBA. Although this year does not give you the necessary skills to begin to teach MBCT/MBA there will be opportunities to begin to lead some practices in a supportive learning environment preparing you for the Diploma.

PGCDip Psychological Therapies Practice

The PGDip Psychological Therapies Practice (Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapies and Approaches) programme has been developed to further equip you with the knowledge and skills in Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) and Mindfulness-based Approaches (MBA).This programme particularly focuses on the skills required to be ready and competent to teach MBCT/MBA classes for clients. You will also be supported in a safe environment teaching to peers before moving to placements to begin to teach in real world settings under the supervision and guidance of an experienced MBCT/MBA teacher.

The PGDip programme aims to develop your readiness to offer MBCT/MBA to people in a setting specific to your professional orientation. You will develop competence in established evidence-based applications of MBCT/MBA assessed by using the Mindfulness-based Interventions - Teaching Assessment Criteria.

The MSc Psychological Therapies Practice and Research (Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapies and Approaches) offers you an opportunity to pursue an in depth consideration and critic of a topic relevant to MBCT/MBA. There are two options: a research project or a theoretical research paper.

The MSc Psychological Therapies Practice and Research (Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapies and Approaches) aims to develop your ability to research, evaluate and critique the MBCT/MBA field.

The Institute for Neuroscience has clinicians and scientists working together to understand the brain and behaviour. From the basic biology of neurons through to complex processes of perception and decision-making behaviour, we address how the mind, brain, and body work together and translate this knowledge into clinical applications for patient benefit.

We offer MPhil supervision in the following research areas:

Motor systems development, plasticity and function

We conduct clinical and preclinical studies of normal and abnormal development and plasticity of the motor system. We run functional studies and computer modelling of motor system activity throughout the neuraxis. We also research the development and assessment of novel therapies for motor disorders/lesions including stem cell and brain-machine interface.

Visual system development, plasticity and repair]]
We research the development and assessment of novel neuro-technological approaches to retinal dystrophy repair including brain-machine interface and stem cells. We use in vitro approaches to look at retinal development and visual system wiring.

[[Neural computation and network systems
We conduct experimental and theoretical (computational) studies aimed at understanding how neurones throughout the brain interact in localised networks to compute complex tasks. Our research looks at the role of network activity in a wide range of neurological, neurodegenerative and psychiatric disorders.

Auditory neuroscience

We conduct clinical and preclinical studies aimed at understanding the brain mechanisms involved in detection, discrimination and perception of sound. We are interested in how these mechanisms are affected in individuals with brain disorders, including dementia, autism and stroke.

Pain

Our research focuses on:
-Understanding mechanisms underlying pain, analgesia, and anaesthesia
-The development of methods to assess pain and to alleviate pain in animals and humans

Psychobiology

We conduct studies in laboratory animals, healthy volunteers and patient populations investigating the mechanisms underlying mood, anxiety and addiction disorders and their treatment. Allied research looks at normal neuropsychology, and the physiology and pharmacology of neurotransmitter and endocrine systems implicated in psychiatric disorders.

Neurotoxicology

Our research focuses on delineating the effects and understanding the mechanisms of action of established and putative neurotoxins, including environmental and endogenous chemicals, and naturally occurring toxins.

Forensic psychiatry and clinical psychology

Our research covers:
-The assessment, treatment and management of sex offender risk
-Development and assessment of cognitive models
-Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) treatment for bipolar disorder, psychosis, anxiety and developmental disorders
-Developmental disorders of perception and cognition

Systems and computational neuroscience

We conduct theoretical (computational) and experimental studies aimed at understanding the neuroanatomy, neuropharmacology of vision, visual attention and episodic memory.

Behaviour and evolution

Many research groups take an evolutionary and comparative approach to the study of brain and/or behaviour, comparing brain function and behaviour among such disparate groups as insects, birds and mammals, and studying the ecological and evolutionary functions of behaviour. Much of our work is at the forefront of the fields of neuroethology, behavioural ecology and comparative cognition, and has important implications for the study and practice of animal welfare.

Visual perception and human cognition

We research:
-Colour and depth perception - perception of natural scenes
-Psychophysics and attention - memory
-Word learning in children
-Body image dysfunction
-Visual social cognition and face processing
-Advertising and consumer behaviour

This programme prepares trainees for work as clinical psychologists in the National Health Service (NHS). The programme is regulated by the Health Professions Council (HPC) and is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS). On successful completion of the course trainees will be able to apply for registration as a Practitioner Psychologist with the HPC in order to practice. In addition successful completion of the three-year programme confers eligibility for chartered clinical psychologist status with the BPS. Those who join the programme are registered as University postgraduate research students and trainee psychologists, working with an NHS contract in the South West of England.

The Exeter DClinPsy programme is based on a reflective scientist practitioner model. As such, it draws on the research/evidence-base to inform clinical activities. This approach is reflected in each of the three modules. The critical role of research evidence as a unifying perspective for research experiences and clinical activities is viewed as a fundamental aspect of the programme. This integration is achieved through course work, research and clinical activities and the latter two experiences are achieved by close working relationships with selected faculty members. This "learning by doing" approach benefits students by continuously involving them in active research projects as well as supervised clinical practice.

Our aim is to produce graduates who will make a meaningful contribution to service users, the services themselves and the profession of clinical psychology. The training is informed and enriched by input from our Lived Experience Network, a group of people who have experience of services, and the Inequalities/Diversity Advisory Group.

Exeter has an international reputation for research relevant to psychotherapeutic clinical practice. It is part of Clinical Education Development And Research (CEDAR) within the department of Psychology at Exeter. (http://cedar.exeter.ac.uk/programmes/)

Programme Overview

- Over 30 years experience in providing clinical psychology training;
- Emphasis on adult lifelong learning exemplified in our problem based learning approach;
- Strong commitment to offer a broad theoretical base in the three major evidence based approaches (CBT, psychodynamic and systemic);
- Expertise in clinical neuropsychology and mood disorders;
- Commitment to promoting diversity and challenging inequalities;
- Strong service user focus;
- Excellent range of research opportunities

In their recent accreditation visit, the British Psychological Society (June 2010) had ten areas of commendation. (http://cedar.exeter.ac.uk/programmes/dclinpsy/bpscommendation/)

Programme structure

The programme consists of clinical, academic and research modules which span the three years.

Clinical module

Core competencies are developed through two year long placements with a final year placement to consolidate your previous learning and specialisation. The emphasis in year one will be on understanding and working with people in context and in year two on integrating psychological therapies in clinical practice.

You will work with a lead supervisor and one or more supplementary supervisors in each placement to gather the necessary range and depth of clinical experience. You are also supported by a clinical tutor who will assist with the development and negotiation of supervisory relationships and help ensure that placements meet your learning needs.

Academic module

Our unique hybrid model of problem based learning includes lectures provided by a combination of local clinicians and national leaders in their field. In the first two years the academic programme is integrated with the placement structure. Following an initial six-week teaching block at the University, teaching is then integrated with the placements involving some University based and some locally based input during term time. A generous allocation of study time is given. In year three lectures take the form of optional workshops in collaboration with our partner institutions at Plymouth and Bristol.

Research module

Through this module you are encouraged to become a research practitioner and critical consumer of clinically relevant research. The module assumes a good undergraduate grounding in statistics and research methods, but you are encouraged to develop your critical and analytic skills and deepen your understanding of both qualitative and quantitative research methodologies. In year three you are allocated a research block of approximately six weeks in which to pursue a major research project and some additional time for private study.

Your programme of study

If you enjoy understanding the way we think and interact with the world and different areas in it, especially the behaviours and coping mechanisms displayed within health and health care this advanced degree will enable you to play an active role in solving major health challenges. As a society we have already seen the positive health impacts of therapies such as cognitive behaviour therapy and mood control, moving many away from traditional drug therapies to thinking therapies.

As we understand more about the power of the mind we can look at ways to improve our quality of life and impact on others and our life experiences to promote good health outcomes much earlier on and work towards them. This is a highly rewarding field which can have a major impact on people's lives and create more positive outcomes within health services to better manage long term illness, disability, stress and impacts on our coping mechanisms.

The University of Aberdeen MSc in Health Psychology, which is accredited by the British Psychological Society, offers you the opportunity to expand on and apply your knowledge and skills to help solve some of the big health issues facing society today.

Course details

- Description

Affective disorders are also known as mood disorders and the main types include depression, bipolar disorder and anxiety disorder.

This course will adopt a multidisciplinary approach by capitalising on the most recent findings from a range of clinical and non-clinical disciplines, such as psychiatry, psychology, genetics, neuroscience, epidemiology and biostatistics. You will be trained in the key scientific and methodological aspects of affective disorders, their care and related research. You will also gain transferable skills through a variety of tutorials and exercises.

- Contact time -

The expectation is that students should be available to attend throughout the working week.

- Course purpose

The purpose of our course is to meet the growing need for a graduate training programme that focuses exclusively on affective disorders. Affective Disorders course is accessible to a wide audience, but would be of particular interest to psychiatrists, GPs, psychologists, related medical professionals and pharmaceutical scientists. It is especially suitable for health professionals who wish to refocus their career and specialise in Affective Disorders. It is equally suitable for health professionals who already work in a relevant field and wish to gain recognition for their expertise. Graduates who wish to pursue clinical psychology training, or research on the affective disorders may also be interested.
