Develop your clinical skills (including assessment, formulation, intervention design and evaluation) and knowledge of theories related to promoting psychological wellbeing. Evaluate therapeutic methods and enhance your reflective practice. And, apply your clinical skills to a field-based dissertation related to best practice in mental health services.
We’ve designed this course for practitioners working across mental health services, from nursing to social work. It focuses on person-centred care in mental health settings and shaping professional practice values.
The course is designed to support the development of core clinical competencies, as outlined by the British Psychological Society (BPS).
Through the core units, you’ll develop a thorough understanding of theoretical and practice frameworks in mental health settings, reflective practice and practitioner wellbeing.
You’ll explore popular therapeutic approaches (including cognitive behavioural therapy, solution-focused brief therapy, and motivational interviewing) and advanced clinical skills, such as assessment, formulation, intervention design and evaluation.
You’ll apply these clinical skills to a field-based dissertation related to best practice in services. You might investigate a particular psychological intervention for clients or members of staff, conduct a service audit or evaluation project or produce an explorative project around how a psychological service caters for their clients.
You’ll have the skills to help you pursue a leadership position across health and social care.
You could also continue with further study, such as for a professional doctorate in clinical psychology or counselling psychology.
When you complete stage 1 and stage 2 (the professional doctorate), you can apply to the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) for practitioner registration.
