We offer a varied Continuing Professional Development (CPD) programme for counsellors, psychotherapists, psychologists and practitioners working in related fields such as nursing, social work, dementia and teaching.
Creative Practices: Poetry and Psychotherapy
This course provides an opportunity to explore creativity and to relate this to the theory and practice of psychotherapy. We will do this through intensive close reading of poetry and examination of the constraints of poetic form.
CPD courses related to Dementia
Working in Partnership with People with Dementia in semester one
Critical Issues in Intellectual Disability and Dementia in semester two
Applications to Counselling courses
A unique feature of the CPD courses provided by Counselling and Psychotherapy at the University of Edinburgh is that students have the option to take them for academic credit or as standard CPD should they wish.
Teaching of our Continuing Professional Development courses is augmented by the expertise of visiting tutors from various professional backgrounds.
