In addition to CYP IAPT courses, the University of Exeter’s CEDAR department runs courses for Children’s Wellbeing Practitioners (CWPs) and CWP supervisors. These courses are focussed on evidence-based low intensity interventions.
The overall aims of the CWP Programme are to promote early intervention and prevention / resilience for CYP’s in the wider community. Effective and sustainable supervision is at the centre of the project’s aims so there is also a need for high quality and evidence-based supervision training.
- The next intake will be in January 2024. Adverts will go out in Autumn 2023
Children’s Wellbeing Practitioner
Low Intensity Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for CYP and Families
The CWP programme is a recruit to train programme. That means that for the first year, you would be funded to work both in your service, and train with the University of Exeter. The programme offers practitioners rigorous training in the CYP IAPT principles and evidence-based practice to equip practitioners to work with children and families with mild to moderate presentations of Anxiety, Depression, and behavioural problems in young children.
Children’s Wellbeing Practitioner Supervisors
Clinical Supervision of Low Intensity Psychological Therapies Practice
The aim of this programme is to develop advanced knowledge, understanding and competencies in the skills required to undertake clinical skills and case management supervision in line with CWP training for children and young people, and to support critical reflection of supervisory skills. This PG Cert in supervising low intensity psychological therapies practice will qualify staff to provide clinical skills and case management to CWP workforces.
Support for services
The University of Exeter is closely involved with supporting services with CWP trainees and supervisors. This may be through accessing the wider Community of Practice events and outreach training, individual service problem solving or keeping you informed of national updates.
