Empathy Skills Training
Our Empathy Skills Training CPD course is aimed at psychological wellbeing practitioners (PWPs) and other professionals who want to deliver more effective psychological interventions for people with common mental health problems.
The course will be delivered by Professor Else Guthrie (Professor of Psychological Medicine), Dr Richard J Brown (Senior Lecturer in Clinical Psychology and Consultant Clinical Psychologist) and Dr Rebecca Hughes (Consultant Clinical Psychologist), who are all senior clinicians and recognised experts in this area.
They will introduce you to techniques aimed at helping you to empathise with clients and thereby enhance your existing practice as a PWP/psychological therapist. Particular emphasis will be placed on using these skills to engage clients, build a therapeutic alliance, identify important areas for intervention and manage the emotional content of sessions. It will be predominantly skills-based, with extensive use of role-plays and video feedback in groups.
There is no requirement for assessment. You will receive a certificate upon completion of the course.
