About

The Postgraduate Certificate in Cognitive Behavioural Studies at the University of Oxford is a part-time course which aims to equip researchers and practitioners with knowledge of the models and theories used in CBT treatment and supervision.  www.conted.ox.ac.uk/cognitive-behavioural-studies

Overview

The Postgraduate Certificate in Cognitive Behavioural Studies is part of a comprehensive CBT training programme, which has been renowned for its consistent record of excellence in CBT practice, training and supervision over the past 25 years.

Oxford is internationally recognised as a centre of excellence in CBT and the course draws on an impressive body of local specialist skill and knowledge.

Course Aims

The course aims to provide students with:
  • a sound knowledge of cognitive behavioural models, concepts and methods
  • an understanding of issues of importance relating to the theory and practice of CBT, including: the relationship between CBT theory and therapy
  • an understanding of the use of CBT with a variety of client groups and disorders
  • related research on outcome and process
  • the ability to convey clearly the central concepts of CBT

The course does not aim to prepare students to practice, teach or supervise CBT. The emphasis is on acquiring an understanding of the theory and practice of CBT treatment and supervision, within an explicit theoretical framework in relation to associated empirical research. To this end, students will attend and complete the theoretical components of the PG Cert in CBT and relevant PG Cert in Enhanced CBT specialisms, thus covering CBT treatment for common psychological disorders, psychological trauma, psychosis and bipolar and CBT supervision and training. This course is appropriate for researchers seeking to gain a strong theoretical foundation in CBT.
