  • 2-Day Face-to-Face Training

    Over one weekend we will consider research as epistemology and examine what persuades us to accept something as fact. You will look at research papers as a form of structured argument and explore case studies as the basic unit of research in psychotherapy.
    You will learn about the basic elements of a case study including methods, measures and methodologies. You will be provided with details of the key requirements for your dissertation submission, and a practical introduction to tools and techniques which can help you with your research project.

    Synchronous Online Learning

    Over the first 6 months of the course students will participate in online learning and peer supervision activities using web conferencing software. You will be expected to spend approximately 2 hours on these activities each month. At the end of the course you will be required to show what you have learned about methods and issues in psychotherapy research by creating and presenting an A1-size research poster on the topic How Do We Know What Works?

    Extended Case Study Research

    Following the first weekend of training you will begin working on your own dissertation. To support you in this process you will be required to make 3 written submissions, each of 2,000-3,000 words in length, for feedback and guidance. The last two submissions can then be incorporated within the final dissertation and be a portion of the final word count of 18,000 words. The submissions are:

    • Submission 1 – Research proposal
    • Submission 2 – Literature Review or Methodology
    • Submission 3 – Methodology or Literature Review

    Dissertation Supervision

    You will be assigned a Dissertation Supervisor. You will be allocated a total of 6 hours’ supervision that may take place over the second part of the course. Supervision meetings may take place face-to-face or by some other suitable means agreed with the Supervisor such as telephone, email or Skype. (If you wish for your supervisor to travel to you and they are willing to do so, additional travel and/or accommodation costs must be met by you.) These meetings can be used for defining suitable methodology, dealing with barriers and obstacles during the process and for the final writing of the dissertation.

  • Applicants must already be in supervised clinical practice and be signed up to a code of Ethics with a register such as that provided by BeeLeaf.  Applicants must already have demonstrated through their course assessments with their current/previous psychotherapy training providers the ability to study and complete written work of post-graduate standard. All applicants who are not currently enrolled on the BeeLeaf Advanced Diploma must complete all sections of the online application form.
