In 2008 the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies project began in order to improve the capacity of psychological therapy services for people with common mental health problems (depression and anxiety) in the UK. The psychological wellbeing practitioner role was created as part of this project in order to support the delivery of psychological therapies within a stepped care system.

Course details

The stepped care system is promoted by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) which works on the principle of offering the least intrusive and most effective treatment (low intensity interventions) in the first instance and increasing the intensity of treatment as required.

This programme provides education and training that meets the requirements of the Department of Health (2011) curriculum for psychological well-being practitioners by:

  • providing you with a substantial knowledge base appropriate to master's level study
  • facilitating the acquisition of core therapeutic and technical skills that underpin low intensity psychological interventions
  • enabling you to develop a positive attitude and commitment towards lifelong learning and personal and development planning
  • ensuring you are prepared to meet the challenges of current and future contemporary mental health services.

What you study

There are eight core themes that run through the award via three modules. They help you to make clear links between theory and practice and include:

  • clinical supervision
  • caseload management
  • information gathering
  • information giving
  • shared decision-making
  • low intensity interventions
  • values, policy, culture and diversity
  • personal development planning.

Course structure

Core modules

  • Advancing Engagement and Assessment Skills for Common Mental Health Problems
  • Advancing Low Intensity Intervention Skills for Common Mental Health Problems
  • Advancing Reflective, Non-Discriminatory Practice

Modules offered may vary.

Teaching

Where you study

Teesside University campus. There is also a practical element to the programme and so you must have a clinical placement with access to a practice supervisor qualified and experienced to deliver low intensity interventions underpinned by cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). Assistance will be given to find a suitable placement.

How you learn

Learning is through a combination of presentations, group discussion and role-play activities as well as self-directed study and supervised practice in the workplace.

How you are assessed

Assessment is through role-play and real patient activities, an examination and practice competencies. All written academic work is marked at master’s level.

Employability

This award prepares you for your role as a psychological wellbeing practitioner. You are eligible to apply for accreditation with the British Psychological Society.
