DProf:Existential Psychotherapy and Counselling
The programme is a full time course over four years. The programme will require your presence at College for one day a week for three terms a year. There will be some weekend workshops to attend as well. In addition you will need to be in a continuous supervised psychotherapy placement for the latter three years of the programme, as well as producing a number of substantial pieces of qualitative research, case studies and a final dissertation. We require you to be in on going personal existential therapy as part of your training (at least 150 hours in total). The following is a guideline to likely workloads:
Contact Time 9 hours per week (Wednesday, Saturday or intensive)
Personal Therapy 1 hour per week (Year 1 onwards)
Personal Study 30 hours per week (Year 1 onwards)
Placement 6 hours per week (Year 2 onwards)
Tutorials 2 hours per week (Year 2 onwards)
The programme will be offered on an intensive basis for distance learners. Some units of the first two years of the programme, at level four, can be taken either on a Wednesday, on a Saturday or on an intensive basis for those entering the programme with advanced standing. The last two years of the programme, at level five, can only be taken on an intensive basis, though some of the required elements will also be offered on a Wednesday.
