Course Summary

This programme is intended to develop your expertise as CBT practitioners, supervisors or trainers through your involvement in the design, implementation and write-up of a practice-based clinical research project. Our Masters in Psychological Therapies: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy will allow you to further your studies with a research based qualification. This MSc will develop research skills which practitioners may employ in their services, and which may also serve as preparation for subsequent doctoral study. Increasingly, research and evaluation is an expected component of mental health services to assess outcome and effectiveness. Information management, evaluation planning, ethical decision making, data collection, analysis and dissemination all share a role in the process of research, and this year is designed to develop your skills in each of these areas. Formative assessment strategies will include formative writing assignments and reflective reports, tests, presentations, tutor responses to participation in online discussion groups, tutor comments on draft pieces of work and peer review. This MSc is intended to develop your expertise as CBT practitioners, supervisors or trainers through your involvement in a small-scale research project. Furthermore, this programme may serve as preparation for subsequent doctoral study, including the PhD in Professional Practice, also delivered at the Salomons Centre for Applied Psychology.
