Course content

This course equips students with the skills to engage people with psychosis and their carers, to assess their subjective difficulties, and to deliver innovative brief structured psychological interventions. Workshops, role plays and case discussions will cover practical skills, and the theory informing practice.

Each module is delivered over eight teaching days, with additional assessment sessions. Developing competent practice is emphasised: following workshop examples, role play with video feedback will be used to develop skills. Students will be expected to practice techniques outside teaching hours. Students will have the opportunity to discuss their own cases, or case examples, to apply the work in practice.
