Counselling for Depression
This course offers professional development for counsellors who are already trained in person-centred or humanistic approaches and who have significant clinical experience; hence Counselling for Depression (CfD) training intends to both build upon existing knowledge and, more particularly, to align counsellors' practice with a competence framework which has strong links to research evidence and follows the curriculum for Counselling for Depression produced by the National Improving Access to Pyschological Therapy (IAPT) team.
A diploma in humanistic or person-centred counselling or psychotherapy and evidence of working towards the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) accreditation or equivalent.
Modules include: Induction to the Improving Access to Pyschological Therapy (IAPT) programme and understanding depression; orientation to the competence framework; theoretical principles and values; working with depression; working briefly; the CfD relational stance; working with emotional processes; assessment of competence; supervision and clinical practice; personal and professional development.
Assessments are conducted through: 20 minute DVD; reflective essay; portfolio (log of 80 hours of clinical practice and log of 6 supervision hours); four audio-recordings of counselling sessions.
