Course content

This MSc Psychological Therapies programme has been developed to equip you with the ability to assimilate and understand psychological therapeutic practise in general and in your chosen therapeutic modality in depth. This includes an appreciation of the relationship between different forms of psychotherapeutic practice.

The programme is designed to constitute a qualifying programme for you to become independent professional practitioners in family/systemic psychotherapy. As long as all requirements are met the programme will give you eligibility to apply for registration with the Association for Family Therapy and Systemic Practice as a family/systemic psychotherapist with the United Kingdom Council on Psychotherapy (UKCP).

The programme is split into academic and clinical sets of modules. The clinical modules will enable you to become a competent family/systemic psychotherapist and run alongside the academic modules. All modules must be passed for you to complete the programme successfully.
