Evidence-Based Psychological Treatment (Postgraduate Professional Development Certificate/Diploma)

Course Description

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.

Modules include:

• Foundation Skills for Working with Trauma
• Fundamentals of CBT with Older Adults
• Treatment and Models of Axis 1 Disorders.

Please note that all modules are subject to change.
