The key aspect of this course is flexibility.
You can attend specific modules according to your individual professional needs and working environment. Some modules hone skills and knowledge in a specific area (e.g. older people, trauma etc) and others cover a diverse range of disorders in less detail. Each module holds a University credit evaluation, and on successful completion these credits can be accumulated towards a University of Reading
qualification in Professional Development in Evidence-Based Psychological Treatment.
This course is run by the Charlie Waller Institute for Evidence-based Psychological Treatment within the Department of Psychology at the University of Reading
