    The philosophy of the course is broadly grounded in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). The CBT approach has been supported by research evidence and advocated by professional bodies and government. CBT is based in cognitive and behavioural models of psychological disorder, and continues to evolve, resulting in an expanding range of interventions.

    Aims of the programme:

    * Enhance students ability to function as part of a flexible workforce, which is responsive to individuals with a variety of mental health disorders
    * Enable the student to become a critically aware consumer of approaches to intervention, able to evaluate the validity and quality of support claimed for a therapeutic intervention
    * Offer students a means of extending confidence as an autonomous practitioner, able to demonstrate an advanced ability to function effectively as a therapeutic agent in complex care arenas
    * Promote the students ability as a reflective practitioner, active in development of his or her own therapeutic skills
    * Foster deeper understanding of operating therapeutically as part of teams and communities
