¿Qué aprenderé?

The Postgraduate Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy develops your theoretical knowledge, reflective abilities and practical skills to enable you to become a skilled and independent practitioner with adults with common mental health difficulties such as anxiety and depression.

Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a type of psychotherapy based on the theory that psychological symptoms develop and are maintained as a result of the interaction between the thoughts, emotions and behavioural responses of the individual.

In cognitive behavioural therapy the therapist and client work collaboratively to identify and change thoughts and behaviours that may be maintaining symptoms.

This course has been developed as part of the national Improving Access to Psychological Therapies initiative, which aims to increase the availability of qualified high-intensity cognitive behavioural therapists.

It’s a collaborative venture between the University and staff from the South Staffordshire and Shropshire Foundation NHS Trust. This collaboration provides excellent opportunities to integrate theory and practice within the award.

The learning outcomes for the course are based on national guidance regarding the Improving Access to Psychological Therapists (IAPT) Curriculum for High Intensity Therapists and the requirements of the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP).

The course has consistently achieved 100% student satisfaction in the Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey.

On successful completion of study, we will issue the following award: PgDip Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.

Work placements

You’ll spend three days a week on placement in the West Midlands region, and two days at the University.

Professional body accreditation

Course graduates gain accreditation of the BABCP. This entitles graduates to practice CBT as independent practitioners. The level 2 qualification is an industry recognised minimum standard that allows graduates to apply for jobs as High Intensity CBT therapists within the NHS. Without this accreditation, graduates would be unable to do this.

Assessment

There are two types of assessments: practice (also called formative) or formal (also called summative).

Practice assessments don’t count towards your final mark. These are your chance to test your understanding and learn how to improve for the real thing.

You’ll have formal assessments at the end of each module. These could include:

  • Case studies
  • Assessed therapy
  • Sessions
  • Portfolios
  • Presentations

Careers

After completing the course, you’ll be equipped to work as a high-intensity cognitive behavioural therapist.

Eager for more knowledge? Upon completion, you’ll be ideally placed for further academic study at top-up Masters level.
