CBT Competencies Framework

The University of Exeter High Intensity Training Programme has been designed in line with CBT Competencies Framework (Roth & Pilling, 2007) and the IAPT High Intensity Curriculum.

For further information on CBT Competencies, please visit: https://www.ucl.ac.uk/pals/research/cehp/research-groups/core/competence-frameworks/cognitive-and-behavioural-therapy

IAPT disorder specific models are those referred to within the CBT competencies framework – references for these models are available by accessing this framework online (see link above).

On the Exeter University IAPT HI Course we ensure that we cover at least one of the approved models for each disorder.

The IAPT High Intensity Curriculum is available on the Health Education England website https://www.hee.nhs.uk/our-work/mental-health/improving-access-psychological-therapies

The evidence base for CBT is constantly being added to. In addition to the IAPT specific models, it is recognised that there are other evidenced based models that may be appropriate to use and so we may also teach the following models:

Specific Phobia Kirk & Rouf
OCD Salkovskis
GAD Wells
PTSD Brewin, Dalgeish and Joseph
Health Anxiety Wells
Salkovskis & Warwick
