Summary of Content:  This module builds on the skills and knowledge, acquired through previous modules, about working with people as a clinical psychologist and prepares students for developing specialist interests in their third year of training. Students will develop an understanding of why people change or fail to change in response to intervention. The programme will offer students a choice of contemporary evidence based theoretical models. The range of options will depend on the availability of local expertise and may vary from year to year. Minimum and maximum numbers of students on each option will be specified to ensure economic viability. Students compare and contrast them with mainstream CBT in order to develop a synthesis which they can apply critically in an integrative or trans-theoretical framework to work with complex clients.

Education Aims:  This module offers an opportunity to learn about and further explore therapeutic models other than cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) and develop thinking about the integration of different therapeutic approaches, tailored to the client. The programme will offer a choice of contemporary evidence based theoretical models. The range of options will depend on the availability of local expertise and may vary from year to year. Minimum and maximum numbers of trainees on each option will be specified to ensure economic viability. Trainees compare and contrast these with mainstream CBT in order to develop a synthesis which they can apply critically in an integrative or trans-theoretical framework to work with complex clients. Trainees will attend a number of teaching days about specific therapeutic models. In addition, they will be invited to specialise in one chosen therapeutic model. This specialism will be developed through attendance at a three-day advanced teaching block and reflective practice groups specific to the chosen model. It is intended that trainees will actively apply their learning in practice on placement within NHS services wherever possible.
