Ethics, Law and Research in Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy - Level 7 - 7CL516

About this module

This module continues to develop and deepen your practice and applied theoretical understanding of a range of human psychological and emotional problems (taking into account the life span of the client) within the context of cognitive behavioural research evidence base.

Its purpose is to continue to equip you with the knowledge, skills and professional behaviours to develop competency to practice as an autonomous cognitive behavioural practitioner and to broaden the focus to incorporate an understanding of the epistemology of research and the use of research methods, ethics and legal frameworks and other professional areas that are essential for competent professional practice and lifelong learning within a psychotherapeutic context.
