Therapy Training after the DClinPsy

Post by AN1 » Mon Mar 09, 2020 9:43 pm

As someone part-way through the DClinPsy, I've already found myself thinking about how I can do further therapy training in a model (probably CBT) post-qualification. Unfortunately I have found that my course seems to give us a lot of "introductions to..." type lectures, but with little depth in any particular model. To improve my confidence and competence in the therapy I am offering to clients, (as well as to open up future career opportunities in training and supervision), I have been thinking about where I could do this training and how I could fund it.

As such, I was wondering whether anyone has an experience of doing therapy training after completing the DClinPsy? How did you fund this and find the time? Do you have any recommendations for particular courses or institutions? Did you find this increased your confidence and competence?

At this stage I am thinking a Diploma in CBT with BABCP accreditation would be ideal. However I am keen to hear about any experiences.

I know that Ruthie did CBT training after the doctorate. She said it was this one: ... al-therapy There are probably other places too. IAPT services often fund newly qualified psychologists to do the training so worth looking into if you’re keen.
