Course content

This programme sits within the existing CYP IAPT programmes in specialist psychological therapies. This programme is closely tied to the aims of the Government’s programme to expand the Improving Access to Psychology Therapies (IAPT) programme and to extend it to children and adolescents. The overall aim is to transform the mental health services for children and adolescents (CAMHS) so as to maximise their efficiency and effectiveness, and ensure that their outcomes are measurable.

It is designed for those interested in developing their engagement, clinical assessment and intervention competences. The course offers practitioners the opportunity to:

  • develop their clinical competency in the low intensity cognitive behavioural therapy;
  • gain an understanding of ways to adapt their practice to increase access to evidence-based psychological practice;
  • and develop core competences and knowledge in these areas applied to working with children, young people and their families.
