Evidence-Based Psychological Treatments

The PGCert course is focused on teaching evidence-based psychological interventions within a range of mental health problems. As such it is suitable as an introduction for new professionals in the area of mental health, and is also suitable for existing therapists who wish to update their knowledge within evidence-based practice. The PGDip course is aimed at mental health professionals from a range of professions (e.g. clinical psychologists, psychiatric nurses, social workers etc) who are incorporating psychological treatments into their work. With the professional courses you can attend specific modules according to your individual professional needs and working environment. Some modules hone skills and knowledge in a specific area (e.g. older people, trauma etc) and others cover a diverse range of disorders in less detail. Each module holds a University credit evaluation, and on successful completion these credits can be accumulated towards a University of Reading qualification in Professional Development in Evidence-Based Psychological Treatment.

Entry requirements

Applicants are normally required to have a relevant undergraduate degree and experience within a mental health profession. Specific requirements change depending on the qualification so please check the University of Reading website for further information.
