Cognitive Behaviour Therapy Postgraduate Programs

Flinders Postgrad courses in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) have been updated to align with the emerging education needs of the healthcare sector and health professionals.  

In Australia and across the world there are fundamental and timely changes necessary to improve the delivery of and access to mental health care through more efficient, integrated and sustainable mental health systems. Graduates of this program are competent and equipped to contribute and ultimately improve mental health service delivery because of their specialised knowledge and clinical competencies in the area of cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), high prevalence psychological disorders and stepped-care models of mental health care. Graduates can work in both private and public health care organisations and are trained to work in a range of primary mental health care roles to contribute meaningfully to an innovative and changing mental health system of care that meets evolving demands. 

The aim of these courses is to:

  • Equip graduates with contemporary knowledge and clinical competencies in cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) and other focused-psychological therapies for
    high prevalence psychological disorders.
  • Produce graduates with applied clinical and research skills in CBT who can contribute meaningfully, and effectively to changing mental health systems.
  • Prepare graduates who are adaptable and reflective practitioners that recognise and maintain ethical, accountable, person-centred approaches to service delivery.
