Integrative Psychotherapeutic Theory and Practice - Level 7 - 7CL500

About this module

This module is ideal for counsellors, psychotherapists and psychologists.

It enables you to reflect upon the nature of three specified therapeutic approaches, specifically Person Centered Approach; Attachment Theory; and Cognitive Behaviour Psychotherapy, in relation to the genesis of human problems and psychological conflicts. 

Relevant focus on forming appropriate therapeutic relationship is also examined from an integrative perspective taking account of influences from socio-cultural and diverse factors.  A transtheoretical model presents a framework from which to understand the processes of psychological and therapeutic change and integration of the different therapeutic modalities. Counselling skills are developed to facilitate processes of change through the therapeutic relationship. 

This module will enable you to develop their knowledge and understanding of psychotherapeutic theory and practise within the University setting in preparation for clinical practice with clients.
