The Masters of Science in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Motivational Interviewing (MI) for Practice programme  is an 18 month programme that arises from a requirement for health and social care professionals to provide effective evidenced based interventions for a range of health and social problems.

The programme is of particular interest to those working in health related fields including mental health nursing, social care, addiction services and voluntary organisations.

CBT is widely utilised for a range of psychological problems. Cognitive and behavioural treatments are among the most extensively evaluated of psychosocial interventions for problem alcohol and drug use. They have an impressive evidence base with  many studies placing them at the very pinnacle of efficacious interventions.

Motivational interviewing (MI) grew out of the substance abuse and addiction treatment fields in the 1980s and continues to be widely used approach in this area. In the past 25 years, Motivational Interviewing has been adapted to the medical and social service fields and has now proven to be a significant tool for facilitating positive behaviour change in people with a range of addictions and others seeking to make positive changes in their lives.
