Re: Entry level route to eventual BABCP Accreditation

It is a forum about clinical psychology but I suspect a lot of us have expertise in related areas myself included.

Re: Entry level route to eventual BABCP Accreditation

Hi, You usually need an undergraduate degree and some experience in a relevant area. If I was you I would be finding Level 2 BABCP courses and then contacting the person listed to discuss whether there is any flexibility in terms of entry requirements. You would also need to do a KSA portfolio for e...

Article request Australas Psychiatry

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone is able to access this and would be kind enough to send me a copy?

How should we manage anxiety in patients with schizophrenia?
Australas Psychiatry August 2015 23: 374-377, first published on June 9, 2015

Thank you

Re: Has CBT for Psychosis Been Oversold?

From attending the BABCP conference and review some studies in this area, I think its more an issue of the wrong outcomes being measured (i.e. focus on reduction in positive symptoms of psychosis) rather than level of distress etc.

More research in this area is definitely needed.

Re: Which Course to choose for my career goal?

Just a further thought, If I was you I'd focus on gaining experience within a service working with veterans.

Re: Which Course to choose for my career goal?

I am pretty sure you cannot have a placement within the military but I will enquire for you and get back to you as I know someone in the forces. I imagine experience of working with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder as a presenting issue would be extremely relevant though.

Re: A long-winded request for help!

Hi, I am sure someone in our cohort had no experience of working in mental health but they did have a psychology BSc. Your experience in a counselling type role sounds relevant but you may have to gain further experience (for instance as a support worker in a mental health service) and complete the ...

Re: Counselling psychology -what types of placement are requ

Hi, I'm sure the second model still has to be at postgraduate level I think it also specifies how many hours this needs to be in the canditate handbook somewhere. I think you would need to email the relevant person (i think there were some contact details in the handbook) to ask about whether the EM...

Re: A long-winded request for help!

Hi, You could do a BABCP accredited CBT course, two years part time would qualify you as a cognitive behavioural psychotherapist, and to register for provision accreditation with the BABCP. I would check there website for full details. They also list trainign providers, ideally you want a level 2 co...

Re: Counselling psychology -what types of placement are requ

Hi, I don't know about the counselling doctorate route, but the independent route has details of this in the division of counselling psychology section. Off the top of my head I think you need at least experience of two settings, with at least two client groups (adult, adolescent, children,, people ...

Re: CBT Training

Hi, Its not distance learning, I don't think you will find an accredited course that is. Although, I only have to go in one day a week for the first two years then one a month (i think) for the final year. If you go on the BABCP website it will list level 2 accredited courses, there may be one close...

Re: CBT Training

You dont need to be in an IAPT service, anywhere which offers CBT and which can offer a suitable placment (enough support/structures in place etc). Our course requires that we have a BABCP accredited supervisor and obviously at least one day a week (around 3 clients seen) of providing one to one CBT...

Re: Cbt verses high intensity iapt

Hi, I think there are definately just as many job opportunities if you dont go the IAPT route, I guess you might be at a disadvantage if you applied for an IAPT job over someone who had an IAPT background though. Im doing a CBT MSc and dont have an IAPT background but this was intentional as I would...

Re: Diploma in Counselling useful or not?

I have spoken to a few CPs and other employers about this and I get the impression that this experience is not highly regarded, at least not as highly regarded as an AP post or Honorary AP post. I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on why this is, as it doesn't make a huge amount of sens...
