This unit is designed to provide the theoretical and practical framework for the major evidence-based psychotherapeutic approach broadly defined as cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) and related therapies. The unit is focused on skill acquisition in intervention practice and management of therapeutic process. The emphasis is on facilitation of practical skill development in terms of content and process. Additionally, the unit will enable students to develop an appreciation of the “common factors” fundamental to outcome in all psychotherapeutic approaches. Opportunities to develop skills will occur through demonstration, observation, practical rehearsal (role-play) and individualised feedback during online collaborate sessions and in the intensive class activities.
