Course descriptionThis course will focus on the development of clinical skills through practice and clinical supervision.

The participants are required to have access to a minimum of two clinical cases for the duration of the course which are suitable for the purposes of training in child/ adolescent CBT, and with whom the student is undertaking CBT interventions. Participants should aim to work with a range of clients (both in terms of age and presenting difficulties) one of which will be presented as a formal case study at the end of the course. Cases presented at the end of the course must be cases for which the student received supervision from the course supervisors and in which they directly administered treatment. The student will provide taped evidence of clinical work which will be submitted alongside the case study, and used in clinical supervision.

Due to the practice-based elements and supervision requirements of this course, it can only be taken on a part-time basis over one year.

Summary of Intended Learning Outcomes
Be proficient in conducting a functional analysis of childhood problems via the use of self report, parental/other report, observations and interview methods.
Demonstrate awareness of and proficiency in providing a cognitive behavioural formulation of the most common problems of childhood in a written format.
Demonstrate awareness of, and proficiency in the application of the most commonly used techniques associated with CBT including: Psychoeducation, structured clinical practice e.g. goal setting, homework, agenda setting. Exposure techniques, cognitive restructuring and building a shared CBT formulation.
Clinical practice should demonstrate an understanding of the developmental and systemic perspective of the child/young person and its relationship with their presenting problem
Assessment Information
Students are required to complete two courses of treatment with two clients. This equates to approximately 80 hours of clinical experience. These cases need to be supervised on a session by session basis. This equates to a minimum of 20 hours of clinical supervision.

Case Study: 4000-5000 words

A taped recording of a whole session which will be assessed using the Cognitive Therapy rating scale version for children and young people.

A reflective practice log of clinical contacts which students will maintain during the course, providing a reflective account of their learning. It is anticipated that students will reflect on personal learning experiences and insights gained in the context of applying a structured psychological intervention with this client group, addressing issues such as therapeutic relationships and processes, evidence based practice, ethics, values, socio-cultural context etc.
