Skills and Training
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a current form of evidence-based psychological therapy recommended by NICE as a first line intervention for many psychological disorders.
This MSc in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy aims to increase students’ knowledge base of theory and research in CBT, and to promote a critical approach to the subject. The course also provides practical, intensive and detailed skills training to facilitate skills development to a defined standard of competence. The course is a Level 2 course in CBT and as such “provides all the necessary training so that on graduation from Level 2 courses, individuals will have received the training required to fulfil BABCP's Minimum Training Standards”
The training aims to help students to achieve the level of theoretical knowledge, reflective abilities and clinical skills to work as psychological therapists, using evidence based cognitive behaviour therapy methods in their work.
