Course content

Designed for practitioners who have completed a PG Diploma or have significant CBT experience, this course offers a ‘top-up’ route to those seeking to specialise or seek accreditation with the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP). Practitioners who have specialised in working with one set of presentations (e.g. anxiety and depression) can develop their knowledge and skills in other areas (e.g. psychosis, bipolar or personality presentations). Students will develop skills in collaborative assessment, formulation and treatment based on empirically validated models and the evolving best practice in the field.
