This course will prepare you to develop a comprehensive proposal for research that can be carried out in their clinical setting.
The short course in advanced skills, Research Skills, is a standalone course, making the training an affordable way to update CBT skills and reflect closely on practice.
Students can apply to take the course as:
- an attendance only course or
- an examined, credit-bearing course of study
Students taking the course for credit will submit a research proposal as an end of course assignment. Successful candidates will be awarded 15 University of Oxford Credit Accumulation and Transfer Scheme (CATS) points.
Students taking the course as an attendance-only course will be awarded a certificate of attendance from the University of Oxford.
As a student, you will be offered the opportunity to develop ‘real-life’ research skills for CBT practitioners. You will gain familiarity with a range of research approaches and statistical analyses relevant to CBT practitioners and researchers, and you will learn how to critically review research papers. Ultimately you will be able to devise a viable CBT project relevant to your place of work.
During the teaching sessions, you will engage in discussion and in a range of practical exercise, applying what you learn to actual research of real CBT issues and topics. You will receive immediate feedback from tutors and peers which will be helpful in shaping up your research ideas.
