About Improving Access to Psychological Therapies at University of Exeter

Workers of high-intensity therapies assess and treat primary care patients with common mental health problems (principally anxiety and depression) using cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). CBT is now known to be an effective treatment option for many problems. The training will ensure that you reach a level of competence that will enable you to obtain the outcomes reported in the relevant NICE guidance. Low-intensity workers will develop competencies in core patient centered interviewing skills, case management, delivery of a range of low-intensity interventions and community working.

You will work in IAPT services providing the high-intensity (face-to-face) CBT component and low-intensity elements of a stepped care approach. These programmes are based on the national curricula published by the Department of Health (2008) which specify the content and learning outcomes required to prepare workers for these roles.

Entry requirements Successful applicants will meet university criteria for registering for a postgraduate level education as well as evidence of mental health practice and training in CBT.
