Adult IAPT Training at NSCAP
NSCAP has been commissioned by Health Education England (HEE) to deliver, for the Yorkshire and the Humber region, and the Northwest, training in three IAPT-approved high intensity therapies. These are:
- Couple Therapy for Depression
- Brief Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy (DIT) and
- Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT).
Information about these trainings is provided on the web page for each modality. These courses lead to accreditation as IAPT Practitioners for applicants who meet the eligibility criteria.
We recognise that there will be a lot of interest in working in these modalities but that not everyone will currently meet the eligibility criteria to undertake the practitioner level courses, and information about the training requirements is provided on the web page for each modality.
The publication of the updated NICE Guidelines for the treatment of Adults with Depression in October 2009 prompted the IAPT Programme to widen the range of therapies on offer within IAPT services. Four psychological therapies for depression have been set out in the NICE-approved guidelines to broaden the range of therapies available to patients at step 3. They are in addition to CBT and likely to be delivered by therapists beyond the core CBT workforce developed to date.
