CBT training

Post by Laura2017 » Tue Jul 11, 2017 7:34 pm

This is probably a silly/ obvious question but I wonder if anyone can help...

Is the only way to do a masters/ pgdip in cbt as an iapt trainee?

If not- do you still have to have a core profession?

And if you train independently of iapt, does this preclude you from working as a cbt therapist within the NHS?

Thanks :oops:

Nope, there are self funded post graduate certificate courses, although you need to have access to clients for your practice. Universities such as Oxford (OCTC) and I think Reading offer such courses. You'll find them listed on the BABCP website under accredited courses. You will have to complete a KSA if you don't have a core profession.

If you're an accredited practitioner you can work in the NHS given you have the required experience of course, although an iapt service may have a preference for those who have done high intensity training, although not necessarily.
