CPD Programme in IPT
Continuing Professional Development Programme in Interpersonal Psychotherapy
Applicants should have a mental health qualification e.g. psychology, psychotherapy, counselling, psychiatry, nursing, social work, and should have experience of working therapeutically with people with mental health difficulties. The course assumes prior experience of conducting psychological therapy and does not provide an introduction at this level. Applicants are required to have at least two years post-qualification experience.
Those applicants who wish to include the supervision option also need to have access to a client presenting with moderate to severe levels of depression for their first case.
Supervision of four cases over one year.
14-18 October 2013
This is a rolling course. Dates by agreement according to need.
1 week course: £1,000.00
This is an IAPT - compliant course and accredited by IPT-UK
IPT is a manualised brief therapy which has an extensive evidence base with working age adults, older people and adolescents.
The National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) recommends IPT for the treatment of depression and eating disorders and, under the patient choice agenda, there is pressure to provide it as an alternative treatment to CBT. Registration as an independent practitioner with IPT-UK is achieved after attendance at an Introductory Course and the successful completion of 4 cases; the course aims to train those applicants who apply for the supervision option to independent practitioner level.
