Health Psychologists need to have safe clinical intervention skills to work in practice with individuals and groups. This training provides an overview of the legal, ethical and clinical standards of practice that are required for setting up and delivering effective health psychology assessments, treatment plans and physical health services in practice.
This online CPD training course gives you all the fundamental information you need to know about conducting Health Psychology consultancy in applied real world practice. The course covers developing a client 'pitch', and its process, contract negotiations and legalities and client relationship management challenges. It discusses differences between research and consultancy skills and their application and the broader psychological competences that are applicable to consultancy practice. Useful references and links are provided for further reading.
Key therapeutic skills for working individually with clients is the focus of this training. Content includes gaining personal awareness, learning the process of therapy sessions, using key communication skills (e.g. questioning techniques) and skills to form a therapeutic alliance. The training provides a valuable basis for attending our training for learning specific therapeutic approaches (e.g CBT).
CBT has been shown to be highly effective in working with clients that have long term conditions and physical health problems. The evidence is now showing broad impacts of CBT on behaviour change e.g. smoking cessation, substance misuse, weight management and helping clients to adjust and cope with health conditions and treatments. This training provides an overview of the CBT model and ethos, key skills and integrating health psychology into CBT assessments and formulations.
Motivational interviewing (MI) has been effective in supporting behaviour change e.g. smoking cessation, substance misuse, weight management. This training provides an overview of the MI model and ethos, key skills, techniques and interventions and provides a practical learning opportunity to develop a manualised approach to undertaking MI practice.
