The curriculum for the course is designed to help you develop the knowledge, skills, and aptitudes necessary to start training in the MBET approach at levels 5 and 6.
Prospective candidates for PC-L5 will need to have successfully completed a level 4 Diploma in therapeutic counselling along with the ability to progress onto a higher level qualification requiring the acquisition of more specific knowledge, skills, and understanding.
The level 6 programme is designed to accommodate those who have not completed a level 4 Diploma in therapeutic counselling but who have relevant training and/or experience. Candidates will need to demonstrate that they have the capacity to cope with the academic and emotional aspects of the training and be open to learning the MBET approach.
The MBET approach brings together 3 key areas in the field of psychotherapy, namely attachment theory, mentalization theory and research, along with mindfulness studies; all of which play central roles in the training of MBET therapists and in informing their work with clients.
Prospective candidates will be informed if additional pre-course assessment procedures will be necessary.
The assessment is ongoing and progress on the course is monitored through weekly learning reviews and participation in group discussion and skills practice/supervision.
The assessment processes are designed to allow the student to demonstrate progress against a set of learning outcomes.
