About the training:

This course is made up of five training days scheduled over six months (on the above dates) and involves completion of two more IPT cases under accreditation level supervision and supervision of initial casework with a novice IPT therapist.  Training will be delivered online using a blended learning approach which will combine access to pre-recorded lectures, online resources such as role play demonstrations, guided reading and large groups and small group exercises.  Students will be required to access the training on Zoom for face to face group work and VIMEO, YouTube and selected relevant websites for offline work. Each training day will follow a timetable that combines online group activities and directed individual activity.  We will provide students with 2 weeks of access to course materials to allow flexibility in when students complete the directed individual activity.  We strongly recommend that students make use of this access throughout the whole training period and review some content in advance of the online training starting.  A detailed timetable will be provided in advance to help participants to prioritise materials for review to make the most of the online sessions.

The course aims to develop advanced skills in group and individual supervision of IPT practice. The course aims to provide participants with advanced knowledge and theoretical understanding of IPT, and will provide a competency based format for self-assessment and clinical supervision. It will extend the knowledge and skills of qualified IPT practitioners in the clinical application of IPT across all focal areas and a range of clinical presentations. This course will consolidate skills and develop knowledge and understanding of skills required to supervise in a peer and accreditation setting.

Trainees will develop skills in evaluating adherence to the IPT model, communicating effectively and constructively on the successful application of knowledge and techniques, and managing and supporting change in non adherent practice. The module will equip trainees with knowledge and understanding of the importance of communication skills, conceptualization skills evaluation skills, supporting skills transfer from alternative approaches, promoting development of new skills and adapted application of existing skills in IPT trainees.
