The Postgraduate Certificate Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Skills at the University of South Wales offers a stimulating introduction to the skills, theory and awareness to inform emerging practice. Successful completion of this course can lead onto our MSc/PG Dip Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy course, although there is no automatic progression and all applicants will need to reapply and be successful at interview for the MSc/PG Dip Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy course.

This qualification can also help people in related professions such as social work, nursing or teaching to develop their listening and communication skills.

• develop the use of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy skills within boundaries of ethical practice (informed by the BACP Ethical Framework and BABCP Standard of Conduct, Performance and Ethics)
• develop interpersonal effectiveness skills in relation to self and others
• develop self-awareness to inform emerging practice, in line with elements of the Cognitive Therapy Scale – Revised (Blackburn et al, 2001)
