This course is open to mental health professionals with at least 2 years of supervised clinical practice and the equivalent of the University of Oxford Postgraduate Certificate in CBT.
There are four separate Postgraduate Certificate pathways for the Postgraduate Certificate in Enhanced CBT:
Psychosis & Bipolar
Supervision & Training
Applicants should apply for only one option at a time.
Course lead: Dr Sarah Rakovshik
This course trains therapists to apply evidence-based treatment to presentations falling outside standard CBT protocols – given that comorbidity and complexity are often the rule, and not the exception, in clinical populations. The course comprises 16 days of teaching over five months including supervision on a bi-weekly basis.
Course lead: Martina Mueller
The course covers the impact of psychological trauma on brain function, memory and psychological development, as well as techniques for working effectively with developmental and adult trauma in a range of trauma populations. The course comprises 16 days of teaching in four blocks over a year, with each block including one half-day consultation group.
Psychosis and Bipolar
Course lead: Louise Isham
This new addition to the OCTC programme reflects the growing evidence base for CBT as an effective intervention for people with psychotic and bipolar disorders. Cognitive models of psychosis and bipolar will be covered as well as the latest evidence-based techniques for working with these client groups. The course comprises 18 days of teaching across the year, with an initial four-day induction block in October followed by fortnightly one-day sessions during term time (including teaching and one 2 hour group supervision session).
Supervision and Training
Course lead: Dr Helen Kennerley
This course develops both supervisory and training skills by combining didactic presentation with live teaching and live supervision practice. It reflects the expectation that clinicians will be able to offer sound supervision and training in CBT, thus achieving and maintaining adequate standards of CBT. The course comprises 18 workshops (presented in five teaching blocks from October to March).
