Introduction Every effort has been made to ensure that the information contained in this entry is correct at the time of writing.

The Programme started in and has been regularly revised and updated to keep ahead of emerging trends in clinical psychology and healthcare. In recent years, the programme has responded to Scottish Government priorities by introducing training places aligned to a specific clinical population such as Older Adults, Forensic or Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services CAMHSor to a specific research alignment.
In these aligned training places, core placements remain the same as for non-aligned places, however specialist placements and theses are expected to be completed Leeds.ac.uk thesis submission the designated aligned areas where possible.
This is a valuable opportunity to be engaged in more in-depth training within a specialty and related research. All places in the intake will be full time and either 3 years in length or approximately 2. Teaching is provided by the Programme Team comprising academic staff and University-based clinical tutors and many local NHS clinical psychologists to reflect current clinical practice and a range of specialised expertise.
Clinical placements are available to trainees in a wide variety of settings including regional and national centres of excellence, supervised by registered clinical psychologists, together with appropriate input from other professionals.
The quality and variety of available placements and the Programme's academic strengths are seen as particularly important features.
Recent innovations have been the development of a range of e-learning modules supporting teaching and placement practice in a variety of specialties, as well as the introduction of distance participation and delivery of teaching supported by video conference technology. Orientation of the Programme The taught component of the programme has undergone a major review over the last three years, moving from population based organisation, to an organisation that balances transferable psychological competencies with population specific adaptations and current conceptual and theoretical approaches in clinical psychology.
The Programme is pluralistic in its orientation, with particular strengths in cognitive-behavioural approaches CBT and systemic approaches, also offering training in Interpersonal Psychotherapy IPT. During the first two years of training you will receive core training, organised around the vertical streams of "Fundamentals of Clinical Psychology", "Assessment and Measurement", "Formulation", "Intervention", "Professionalism and Practice" and "Research".
In addition, you will learn specific adaptations required to apply psychological principles with adults of working age who experience a wide range of physical and mental health difficulties and adaptations required for applying psychology with people who have intellectual disabilities.
In Year 2, these vertical streams are continued and deepened, with a further emphasis on working with complexity, developments in therapeutic modalities, thinking and working from a systemic perspective and adaptations required for working with both children and families and older people.
In terms of therapeutic modalities, the first two years give an excellent grounding in cognitive therapy, behavioural therapy and systemic therapies, as well as introductions to psychodynamic work, interpersonal approaches, critical and community psychology, and "Third Wave" such as ACT, CFT, and Mindfulness.
You will have the opportunity to specialise in these and other therapies later in training. The Programme is unique in offering more in-depth training in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Interpersonal Therapy.
The Programme also allows you to choose certain elements of your training in Year 3, enabling you to specialise. These "Advanced Practice Seminars" APSs typically cover therapeutic modalities and also specialist populations in depth and are typically structured as seminars and advanced skills workshops.
For example, you will have the choice of sessions in Schema Therapy, Cognitive Analytic Therapy, Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, psychological approaches to psychosis, and advanced practice in systemic and family therapies.
The IPT training enables you to train to accreditation standard. The emphasis of the Programme is on a variety of models as befits the current state of clinical psychology, underpinned by the scientist-practitioner and the reflective-practitioner orientations.
Trainees are taught how to apply psychological theories to clinical problems, and to understand the importance of the link between theory, evidence base and practice in clinical formulation, intervention planning and problem solving.
Throughout training there are reflective practice sessions, to foster your own reflections on your developing identity as a psychologist, the nature of this work as a scientific and human endeavour and the impact of working therapeutically on your own well-being and self-care.
Administration of the Programme The Programme is overseen by the Joint Training Committee which meets twice a year and has approximately 30 members consisting of members of the Programme Team, NHS supervisor representatives, clinical psychologist managers representing each of the NHS Health Board areas, trainee representatives, experts by experience, local area tutors and representatives from NES.
Supervisors also meet to discuss issues related to the Programme.Receipt for Thesis Submission (for examination) Research Student Administration. Student Services Centre, Marjorie and Arnold Ziff Building.
