Cognitive Behavioural Therapy High Intensity

This diploma is core funded by West Midlands NHS and is designed to provide a postgraduate training for a group of the Improving Access to Psychological Therapy (IAPT) High Intensity Cognitive Behaviour Therapists. The diploma teaches students to achieve the level of knowledge and clinical skills to operate effectively as psychological therapists, using evidence based cognitive behaviour therapy methods routinely in their work. Following the success of the IAPT initiative in Primary Care Mental Health Services, work is in progress to maintain existing IAPT services and to extend into other services whose users could benefit from psychological therapies. This may include a range of mental health services, addictions services, and physical health care services. For trainees to be successful, they attend university 2 days per week and 2 days per week clinical placement, with supervision. Placements are most successful within an IAPT service, so it is hoped that provider sites are able to work in partnership with IAPT to foster this mutually beneficial arrangement.
