This course will provide you with a thorough grounding in the theory, evidence base and practice of low-intensity psychological therapy for common mental health problems. You’ll focus on developing your clinical skills in Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT)-approved methods, including behavioural activation, exposure and habituation, panic management, cognitive restructuring, sleep management, problem solving and medical concordance.
