PRAXIS CBT is designed for health professionals who are clinically qualified but have no particular knowledge of CBT.
The 12-week part-time course involves interactive online training as well as face-to-face supervision. The online element includes text-based information, video clips and interactive exercises that build up to create a handbook. Learners will then meet with a supervisor to discuss progress and gain feedback.
After completion of the course there is also an opportunity to study for academic credits up to the level of a postgraduate certificate at the University of Cumbria.
Professor Ivy-Marie Blackburn, a consultant in clinical psychology at the trust, was involved in producing content for the course. ‘There is currently a national focus on CBT training – this will educate a large number of professionals in a cost-effective way, without them having to leave the work place,’ she said.
