This programme is aimed at clinical psychologists, psychotherapists and other professionals with experience of delivering mental health such as nurses and counsellors. It provides intensive skills training in accordance with British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Therapies (BABCP) guidelines for good practice.

Workers of high-intensity therapies assess and treat primary care patients with common mental health problems (principally anxiety and depression) using cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). CBT is recommended in the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidelines as part of the stepped-care approach. The approach works to alleviate symptoms and have a positive impact on social inclusion, employment and productivity. Practitioners will work closely with other agencies to assess and maximize employment opportunities for each client.

The programme prepares you to provide both the high-intensity, face-to-face, CBT and low-intensity elements of a stepped care approach within Improving Access to Psychological Therapies services. It adheres to the national curriculum published by the Department of Health (2008). The School maintains a firm commitment to evidence based clinical practice and as such we endeavour to ensure all of our training programmes are firmly embedded within current research.
