During the training you will gain the knowledge and skills to assess and engage patients who may present in IAPT services through referral from a Health Professional or through Self-Referral. You will learn how to undertake a disorder specific patient-centred assessment and how to support patients to use evidence-based Low Intensity CBT interventions in face to face, telephone, group and cCBT formats.

Towards the end of the training you will consider your practice in context by understanding the differences between high and low intensity interventions.
