Evidence-Based Psychological Practice
The Postgraduate Diploma in Evidence Based Psychological Practice is directed at Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners (PWPs) who have completed IAPT1 Postgraduate Certificate PWP training at an IAPT BPS2 accredited University. Consequently the programme enables students to adapt and enhance their practice as a Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner to work effectively with patients with co-morbid long term physical health conditions. Students also develop the knowledge and competency required to be both an effective clinical supervisor and to support and enhance their competencies as a service leader, alongside an understanding of appropriate research and methodological issues to inform their practice as a scientist practitioner.
Applicants must have completed the PgCert IAPT training at an IAPT BPS accredited University. Candidates entering at PgCert level need to undertake and interview and provide evidence of a satisfactory Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check; candidates must satisfy the general admissions requirements of the University of Exeter; non-standard applications from those who have completed the IAPT BPS PWP training programme at degree level 6 are considered where applicants can demonstrate the required academic ability alongside existing knowledge, experience and skills developed in the workplace, relevant to this programme; those who successfully completed this training at degree level 6 should contact the Programme Director to discuss the possibility to accept them onto the PGDip training.
The PGDip consists of 4 modules: supervising evidence based psychological therapies; enhancing low intensity treatment working with long term conditions; leadership and sustainable development in health care settings; methodological approaches in psychological therapies.
