Description

This course offers further opportunity to develop skills in CBT formulation, with a focus on CBT case conceptualisation and intervention. It builds on the interviewing skills developed in PSYC442, including the engagement strategies for working with Maori and other client groups. Upon completion students should be able to critically integrate CBT assessment and treatment strategies.

PSYC443 follows from PSYC442 providing further opportunity to develop skills in cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) assessment and formulation, with a focus on beginning CBT interventions for mental health and addiction difficulties. The course will focus on CBT and bicultural engagement, assessment, and intervention techniques, applying Māori concepts to CBT to increase engagement with both Māori and non-Māori. Key CBT interventions for common mental health problems—depression, anxiety and alcohol and substance problems—will be taught, with a focus on delivering treatments that relate to CBT formulations of client problems.
PSYC443 is a compulsory course for the Postgraduate Diploma in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (PGDipCBT).

Learning Outcomes

Upon passing this course, I will:

1. Have a detailed understanding of the evidence base that supports CBT interventions for mental health problems.

2. Have a detailed knowledge of basic CBT intervention strategies such as psychoeducation, behavioural activation, relaxation, behavioural experiments and identification and evaluation of cognitions.

3. Be able to assess a client, develop a formulation and treatment plan, monitor the outcome of CBT treatment, and make appropriate adaptations for Māori.

I will learn this by:

1. Teaching will introduce students to the evidence base of interventions for mental health and addiction problems.

2. Teaching about CBT intervention strategies. Modelling and role-play of intervention strategies during the block teaching. Utilising these techniques in supervised clinical practice.

3. Teaching about assessment, formulation, treatment and monitoring of outcome. Teaching about delivering CBT to Māori clients. Utilising assessment, formulation and treatment skills in supervised clinical practice.

My learning will be assessed through:

1. Development of a client psychoeducation resource. Review of research evidence in the CBT treatment case study.

2. Preparation of a client psychoeducation resource. Oral paper case: Assessment, formulation and treatment. CBT treatment case study

3. CBT treatment case study
