Course content

Evidence-based brief interventions have been at the centre of healthcare policy for many years, but there is a growing awareness that not all individuals are responding to the existing approaches.

The importance of using more than one therapeutic approach is thus gaining ground; the emphasis being on the individual practitioner developing and using a multi-method approach.

This course aims to equip practitioners with the skills to deliver such an approach by drawing on a number of evidence-based interventions that can be used within a brief framework.

The focus of our programme is on the application of skills to the practice area and, as such, you will exit with an award that will be of high practical value.

Our programme team have a wide range of clinical skills and therapeutic backgrounds that will be used throughout the course, ensuring that you will exit with skills in brief, group and creative therapies, as well as family interventions and cognitive behavioural approaches.
