This British Psychological Society (BPS) accredited course delivers the training to qualify as a Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner.
The role of a PWP is to assess for common mental health problems such as depression and anxiety disorders and deliver low-intensity interventions based on cognitive behavioural therapy. This may consist of multiple formats such as one-to-one, group and online interventions.
The programme features a variety of teaching methods including role-plays, skills practice and clinical work carried in an IAPT setting.
You will receive 80 clinical hours experience with patients and receive more than 40 hours of supervision.
The Charlie Waller Institute currently offers two intakes per year in April and September. However, as to how many places are available per cohort is dependent on NHS service funding.
