O que eu aprenderei?

Recognition of the personal and social cost of unmet mental health need within primary care has led to a government-supported initiative to broaden access to psychological therapies, introducing the cutting-edge role of psychological well-being practitioners. This brings evidence-based cognitive behavioural treatments to all people who experience mild to moderate depression or anxiety.

You can study Psychological Well-being Practice (PWP) with us at one of two levels. Our Graduate Certificate is relevant for those without an undergraduate degree, who can demonstrate they have the skills to be able to study at level 6, and our Postgraduate Certificate is relevant for those who already have an undergraduate degree.

Our certificates in PWP enable you to work with people who experience common mental health problems. You will learn to use a range of protocols derived from the best evidence-based practice methodologies available. The protocols are drawn from cognitive behavioural theory and utilise self-help processes to empower patients to take control of their own well-being needs.

You will learn the coaching and facilitation skills necessary to support this kind of self-help process and receive a full grounding in the theory underpinning these approaches. You will also learn about the service structure underpinning the IAPT (Improving Access Psychological Therapies) initiative which you will be working in during your training.

The University of Essex has a robust academic tradition and achieves regular high levels of student satisfaction. We continue to work with students, service users and practice partners to continue to improve this established track record.

Your future

During your training, it is usual for students to be employed at NHS Band 4 or equivalent. Following training, it is usual for your employing organisation to continue your employment at NHS Band 5 or equivalent. This change in banding acknowledges your qualified status.

PWPs may also go on to achieve senior PWP status and role after gaining further experience. You may also choose to extend your role into one of the new developing areas in IAPT. Some PWPs may become more involved in education of new practitioners. Generally, PWPs stay within the role deepening their skills and competencies.

Other career development areas may be available in your IAPT services.
