Course content

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) has been shown to be effective for people with a wide range of mental health conditions, including people with psychosis. This programme is designed to give mental health professionals without prior experience of CBT the academic and clinical skills to implement this approach in their work settings.

About this degree

The programme will develop participants’ skills in CBT for anxiety and depression, and the application of these skills to individuals with psychotic symptoms.

Students undertake modules to the value of 120 credits.

The programme consists of six core modules.

Core modules

  • CBT for Anxiety - advanced (15 credits)
  • CBT for Depression (behavioural activation) (15 credits)
  • CBTp Intervention (30 credits)
  • CBT for Psychosis (fundamentals) (15 credits)
  • Clinical Portfolio (15 credits)
  • Fundamentals of CBT (30 credits)

Teaching and learning

The programme is delivered through a combination of didactic teaching, self-directed study and supervised clinical practice. Assessment is through coursework, reports of clinical practice and the presentation of a clinical portfolio.

Further information on modules and degree structure is available on the department website: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (Psychosis) PG Dip

Careers

This programme will broaden the career options of participants by expanding their therapeutic competency and the range of clients with whom they are trained to work.

Employability

Participants will already be in employment in NHS settings; the skills and knowledge conferred by the programme will enhance their employability.

Why study this degree at UCL?

This programme bridges academic knowledge and clinical application. A primary aim is to help participants make links between theoretical knowledge of CBT and its application in clinical settings, and teaching sessions will include extensive case discussion.

To supplement face-to-face teaching and encourage self-study, participants will have access to online resources, including video vignettes demonstrating the application of CBT.

The programme will afford excellent opportunities for participants to meet and work with clinicians from a wide range of professional backgrounds and clinical services.
