Education Aims:  The aims of this module are to familiarise students with the theoretical models clinicians use to understand the acquisition, instigation and maintenance of problems commonly referred to clinical psychology services. Students also learn about models of change and growth derived from CBT and other EBP based models in order to develop and deliver effective client-focussed interventions.

As the module progresses, students practice skills of formulating from more than one evidence-based theoretical perspective and learn how to offer a CBT formulation tailored to the capacities of their clients; negotiate a therapeutic contract appropriate to different client problems and service settings; and deliver a CBT intervention.

Students consolidate their scientist-practitioner stance and reflective practice skills and further develop the capacity to work effectively in pairs and small groups.
