About Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy (CBP) at Queen's University Belfast

Anxiety and depression are among the most common mental health disorders experienced by all ages. Psychological recovery is greatly enhanced when the individual receives the correct treatment. Cognitive Behaviour Psychotherapy (CBP) is currently the key recommended psychological treatment for these conditions. It is essential that practitioners are prepared with the necessary knowledge, skills and attitudes to deliver CBP competently. This course is written to the requirements of the lead organisation in the UK which sets the competency standards for Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy. The teaching at the University and with Clinical colleagues in placement areas is of the highest standard. This course will fundamentally alter the way clinicians work in practice.‌

• At least two years' clinical practice / experience in a relevant area (statutory or independent sector) working with clients with mood and anxiety disorders, AND

Applicants who meet the academic criteria but who are non-core and unable to provide KSA evidence will be required to enter through the School's KSA pathway. In this instance if all other requirements are met the applicant will be offered a place on the one year certificate programme to allow time for the KSA portfolio to be completed. On successful completion of this course and the completion of the KSA portfolio, the student will normally then be eligible for application to the PG Dip programme.
