Well it has been a very busy and exciting few months.
I have been asked to facilitate a brand new venture at The Manchester Institute for Psychotherapy, in proving a Diploma in Children and Young People Psychotherapy.
There will be two different diplomas, one for existing adult psychotherapists who are registered and accredited with the UKCP and another for people who are looking for a brand new career in working with children.
The Diploma will be accredited by EIATCYP/EAP and will lead, when all parallel obligations are met to be registered as a child and adolescent psychotherapist.
I am currently working on the publicity literature, the brochure and the handbooks for the two courses. This work is part of Child Therapy World, a department of The Manchester Institute for Psychotherapy. My colleagues at Child Therapy World, Steffy Cooke and Amanda Phillips are also involved in this venture and have their own interests in the Children and Family division and Education.
Both Diplomas will held at weekends for 10 modules each year. The modules, whilst being grounded in theory and theory to practice, are also didactic and experiential. The Diplomas are at Master’s level, (NVQ level 7)
If you are interested in receiving any information telephone The Manchester Institute for Psychotherapy (0161 862 9456) and asked to be put onto the mailing list as the information will be available in early 2014.
