Improving Access to Psychological Therapies Programme (IAPT) for CBT High-Intensity Therapists
Psychological therapy services across London and outside London (East of England, South East and the Midlands) are now recruiting CBT High Intensity Trainees as part of the IAPT programme. These services deliver evidence-based psychological therapies for people with anxiety and depression.
Are you an experienced mental health professional or social care worker with a recognised professional qualification working in a mental health setting? Have you considered training in cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and getting paid to do it?
Applications are invited from qualified Clinical or Counselling Psychological Therapists, Mental Health Nurses, Psychotherapists, Counsellors, Occupational Therapists and Social Workers to apply for the one-year full-time IAPT post-graduate diploma courses based at King’s College London.
Applicants without a recognised and accredited core mental health professional training (such as Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners or Psychotherapists and Counsellors without UKCP or BACP accreditation) are not eligible to apply for the June intake but may apply for the October intake later in the year.
The training programme consists of three days working within an IAPT service and two days at university taught by experts in the field.
