The programme aims to promote a high-quality, vocational education which is intellectually rigorous and responsive to the changing demands of public services, the non-statutory sector and private practice.
There is a focus on ethical practice and a good understanding of the importance of a capacity to work with social difference and disadvantage in order to provide professional practice that reaches out to the widest possible range of need.
Teaching is provided both by academic staff and experienced practitioners who use a variety of training methods, including experiential exercises, audio-visual recordings, formal lectures and seminars.
The programme has been designed to be flexible and responsive to the specific needs of those training, ensuring it is relevant to their particular work circumstances.
The varied professional backgrounds of students facilitates lively discussion and in-depth consideration of the application of psychotherapeutic concepts to their supervision, consultation and coaching practice.
Different psychotherapeutic and psychological approaches to supervision, consultation and coaching are taught so that practitioners can better satisfy the needs of individuals, teams and organisations seeking their services.
