Fundamentals of Therapeutic Interaction with Children and Young People (996C8)
15 credits, Level 7 (Masters)
By the end of the module students will have gained knowledge and skills on strategies and techniques which will prepare them to undertake basic CBT informed assessment and practice with children and young people.
Sessions will include theoretical teaching which will provide students with an overview of the topic area. Knowledge and skills will then be grounded and consolidated through individual and small group excercises, modelling and rehearsal using case examples in some of the clincal skills based sessions.
