Summary of Content: Summary of Content: This module (progressing from FPA and in conjunction with ICI) is designed to consolidate the transferable skill of forging close theory-practice links and adding the core competence of CBT intervention to those of assessment, formulation and communication, previously acquired. The module is closely linked to FPA and would normally occur in the same service with the same co-ordinating supervisors and typically with some of the same clients. The emphasis shifts from assessment and formulation to applying their results to individual client interventions.

Education Aims: The aim of the placement is to familiarise students with the delivery of CBT interventions in NHS settings, where high standards of professional behaviour need to be demonstrated. Students learn to recognise types of problems that CBT could be effective for and develop the skill of designing, delivering and evaluating CBT interventions based on their own individual formulations. Students establish collaborative therapeutic alliances, deliver CBT formulations, negotiate therapy contracts and motivate clients to engage in change processes. Students begin to develop competence in communicating formulations to other professionals and enlisting their cooperation in delivering a consistent and effective psychological care plan. Students have opportunities to practice their teaching skills by giving presentations to audiences as negotiated with supervisors.
