Course content

The Postgraduate Certificate has attracted students from clinical and counselling psychology, psychiatry, general practice, nursing, social work, speech therapy, occupational therapy, counselling and the voluntary sector. It provides qualified healthcare professionals with high quality training and supervision in CBT theory and practice, enhancing knowledge and skill in what is now recognised by the National Health Service as a major psychological treatment modality, with a substantial and growing evidence base.

After successful completion students are awarded a Postgraduate Certificate from the University of Oxford.

Course aims

The Course aims to provide students with:

  1. A sound knowledge of cognitive behavioural models, concepts and methods.
  2. An understanding of issues of importance relating to the theory and practice of CBT. These include:
  • the relationship between CBT theory and therapy
  • the use of CBT with a variety of client groups and disorders
  • related research on outcome and process
  1. Competence in assessing patient suitability for CBT
  • in developing CBT case-formulations
  • in devising and implementing individual treatment programmes
  • in evaluating their effects
  1. The ability to convey clearly the central concepts of CBT and to communicate basic treatment skills.

The Course does not aim to prepare students to teach and supervise CBT. The emphasis is on acquiring, practising and communicating specialised clinical skills, within an explicit theoretical framework in relation to associated empirical research.
