Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is generally seen as one of the best psychotherapeutic approaches to support and treat individuals to cope with a range of mental health issues. This Master’s in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is regarded as one of the most innovative programmes of its kind in Ireland. The programme sets out to develop professional practitioners who can work individually in professional practice or as part of multi-disciplinary team in a range of settings using CBT approaches.
As part of this Masters programme, you will study the fundamental theories of cognitive behavioural therapy as well as advanced cognitive behavioural skills. There is also a module specifically supporting you to understand psychopathology. In addition you will study evidence based practice and research methods and design.
All of these modules are designed to support you to apply all these elements of learning during the 200 hours of client work you are required to engage with in a practicum module as well as in the completion of a dissertation. The programme combines both theory and practical skills in a way that supports the academic and professional development of the learner.
Part-time students commit to the programme for two years and they normally complete their taught modules in the first year and spend their second year working on their Practicum and Dissertation. Please refer to timetables for exact times and dates.
