Course content

This course equips students with the skills to engage people with psychosis and their carers, to assess their subjective difficulties, and to deliver innovative brief structured psychological interventions. Workshops, role plays and case discussions will cover practical skills, and the theory informing practice.

The programme is designed for frontline mental health professionals, but is also suitable for graduates without a mental health qualification who are interested in pursuing further work or study in the area.

Key benefits

  • The Internationally renowned centre for the development and evaluation of cognitive behavioural interventions for people with psychosis and their carers, offers unrivalled access to current innovations in practice and research.
  • Students can choose from a selection of interventions to suit their practice or preference.
  • The course highlights the most topical developments in the field.

Description

The course is designed to equip frontline mental health professionals with the skills to deliver brief structured interventions for people with psychosis and their carers. Other students usually have a background in psychology, neuroscience, pharamcology, psychiatry, nursing or related disciplines.

Each module is delivered over eight teaching days, with additional assessment sessions. Developing competent practice is emphasised: following workshop examples, role play with audio/video feedback will be used to develop skills. Students will be expected to practice techniques outside teaching hours. Students will have the opportunity to discuss their own cases, or case examples, to apply the work in practice. 

An engagement module, which covers models of psychosis and of caregiving in psychosis, and ways of interacting with people with psychosis and their carers together, is compulsory. A selection of other interventions can then be chosen, each covered over a module.
