Extended Training in CBT

 
An extended training which acquaints delegates with their chosen topics, includes projects to be completed at work, and has an assessment component with appropriate certification.
 

...........................................................................................................................................................................

People who attend this course normally fall into one of two categories:

1. Groups of professionals who see patients in 1:1 treatment settings, have a significant degree of clinical skill, and wish to become proficient in CBT applied to a range of conditions such as depression, panic, eating disorders, etc.

2. 'Whole teams' (either in inpatient or community settings) seeking to develop a unified level of proficiency in CBT.

The professional affiliations of people attending this course include: mental health/psychiatric nurses, social workers, occupational therapists, clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, and others working in a variety of settings including: Adult Mental Health, Children and Adolescents, IAPT services, and Substance Misuse

...........................................................................................................................................................................


Background and structure:

The way the system works is this: the first module covers ‘key skills’ and sets you up for subsequent modules covering a wide range of topics from depression through to substance misuse. 

So the ‘key skills’ module covers topics such as: what CBT is and is not, examples of CBT techniques, how to structure CBT sessions, how to evaluate your progress, the importance of supervision and how to get it, the different types of accreditation, their relative merits, and how to go about gaining it if you wish to.  In other words, all the ‘across the board’ skills that are necessary no matter what problem a specific patient presents with.

There is a very wide range of subsequent modules, and you can choose as many or as few (minimum four) as you wish.  Ones currently available are:

   •  CBT for Depression
   •  CBT for Stress and Worry
   •  CBT for Panic
   •  CBT for OCD
   •  CBT for Anger and Irritability
   •  CBT for Substance Misuse

What makes Extended Training in CBT different from standard training is that after every module delegates have the opportunity to – and are expected to – do two things:

•  To pass the online 'quiz' for each module. Success in this exam automatically gains
   delegates APT’s Level 2 accreditation for that topic (CBT with depression, panic, etc). 

•  To write a project (2,000 - 4,000 words) describing the treatment of a patient with the
   condition in question. Success in this (submitting a project which obtains a pass mark
   or better) automatically gains APT’s Level 3 accreditation.


...........................................................................................................................................................................


The Exams:

Delegates sit an online exam (quiz) corresponding to each of the modules taught. The exams are designed to be a thorough test of the knowledge elements of each of the modules and therefore - in assessment terms - intended to complement the projects, which test delegates’ ability to apply that knowledge.

...........................................................................................................................................................................



The projects:


Project One: assessment and case conceptualisation.

•  The assessment. This will contain all the information you have gathered, whether by
   interview or by examining the pre-existing notes on the person.

•  The case conceptualisation. This should include a clear account of (a) how the
   problems evolved, (b) what is maintaining the problems and (c) what CBT elements
   you believe will be relevant in overcoming the problems. Subsequent projects: an
   account of CBT applied to each of your chosen specialist areas.

Subsequent projects: an account of CBT applied to each of your chosen specialist areas.

Subsequent projects each follow the same format, namely to write up the assessment and treatment of a patient who has the problem in question (depression, or worry, or substance misuse, etc). A good piece of work will contain the following:

•  A full account of the assessment interview.
•  Your conceptualisation of the problem.
•  Your goals.
•  Your plan for achieving the goals.
•  How you measure your progress in achieving the stated goals.
•  A clear account of treatment sessions.
•  An overall summary of how the treatment progressed.
•  Reference to any relevant literature.

...........................................................................................................................................................................


Assessment and Accreditation:

Delegates obtain Level Two accreditation in each subject they pass the exam (quiz) in.

Delegates obtain Level Three accreditation in each subject for which they pass the exam and submit a project which obtains a pass mark.
