This 'Recruit to Train' Postgraduate Diploma, a Department of Health initiative, provides specialist post-qualification training for Child and Adolescent (CAMHS) workers within the CYP IAPT model, focusing on the clinical areas of child mental health: anxiety, depression and conduct disorder.

Students will gain a critical understanding of the CYP IAPT model of service change, outcome monitoring, and fundamentals of evidence-based psychological therapies to common mental health problems in childhood and adolescence (anxiety, depression, and conduct problems). Students will also develop skills in Autism Spectrum Conditions/Learning Disabilities (ASCLD) Interpersonal Psychotherapy for Adolescents (IPT-A) or Under 5’s, depending on the module choice.

Students undertake modules to the value of 120 credits.

The programme consists of two compulsory Core Skills modules (30 credits each) which all students will complete. Students then study two optional modules from their chosen speciality (i.e. ASCLD, IPT-A or Under 5s) (30 credits each).

Upon successful completion of 120 credits, you will be awarded a PG Dip in Child and Young Person IAPT Therapy.
