Course content

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) has been shown to be effective for people with a wide range of mental health conditions, including people with psychosis. This programme is designed to give mental health professionals without prior experience of CBT the academic and clinical skills to implement this approach in their work settings.

This programme bridges academic knowledge and clinical application. A primary aim is to help participants make links between theoretical knowledge of CBT and its application in clinical settings, and teaching sessions will include extensive case discussion.

To supplement face-to-face teaching and encourage self-study, participants will have access to online resources, including video vignettes demonstrating the application of CBT.

The programme will afford excellent opportunities for participants to meet and work with clinicians from a wide range of professional backgrounds and clinical services.
