The programme reflects a competency-based approach to training. The aim is to develop trainees to graduate as reflective scientist-practitioners, able to take a flexible and responsive approach in the variety of service contexts in the evolving NHS. This will include developing knowledge and skills in four theoretical models (CBT, Psychodynamic, Systemic and Community Psychology); knowledge and skills to work with disadvantaged groups; and research capabilities, including writing for publication and an original contribution to the evidence base.
