Our postgraduate diploma in Psychological Intervention: IPT (Interpersonal Psychotherapy) offers training that will develop your core counselling skills and (subject to successful programme accreditation) gain a full therapy qualification in working with adults using this model.
The National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidelines recommends interpersonal psychotherapy as a treatment for depression, and it’s also part of the Government’s provision to increase the availability of talking therapies through the Increasing Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) scheme. This programme is designed to train therapists in this specific approach.
At the moment, this is the only course in the UK that can give you interpersonal therapy training in order to work with adult clients with no previous therapy qualification, as long as you have appropriate experience. You’ll also have the option to complete a third research year after this two-year PGDip to obtain an MSc.
This psychological intervention programme has been designed to meet your needs if you don’t already have a therapy qualification, but aspire to become a qualified practitioner in NICE-recommended psychological therapy.
The PGDip Psychological Intervention: IPT (Interpersonal Psychotherapy) will train you in the theoretical understanding of mental health issues, and develop your skills in using the IPT model with adult clients.
You’ll learn through a rich range of learning experiences, including the opportunity to integrate theory with practice. After completing the programme, you’ll be able to provide high quality therapy to adults.
