2 The Class of 2014 The Class of 2013
3 Two Year Part-Time Course Thank you for your interest in the two year, part time course in psychosexual and relationship therapy, which commences in January This course will offer trainees, newly qualified and more experienced practitioners from a variety of fields and disciplines the opportunity to explore and hone their counselling and therapeutic skills within the psychosexual & relationship therapy domain. The course is modular, facilitated on Friday, Saturday and Sunday in the first year and Friday and Saturday in the second year. Year One: we will use a variety of Integrative techniques that will address the dilemmas that are inherent when interweaving the more traditional models of sex therapy with Gestalt, Imago, working with survivors of abuse in a psychosexual context, dreams, fantasy, cybersex and imagery. In order to apply for COSRT accreditation you must undertake and successfully complete the full two year training and complete 200 post qualifying hours of client work prior to applying to COSRT for accredited status. Year Two includes supervised practice, case studies and dedicated learning which includes the work of John Heron, CBT, working with diversity, and addressing issues of love and passion alongside student and case presentations. From time to time an additional specialist lecturer will facilitate the group. The course adheres to COSRT curriculum guidelines. A comprehensive student hand book is given to all students at commencement of the course. This course allows practitioners to develop an inclusive model of communication skills, which in turn will enable their clients to address their verbal, emotional and physical environments. In addition to working with the presenting issues practitioners will be encouraged to look at the underlying material which is brought into therapy by both individuals and couples. An understanding and awareness of sexual and relationship issues both organic and non organic will be taught and incorporated into the course. It should be noted that this course does not have a medical orientation, however, attending to and being mindful of organic/physical conditions which affect sexual function will be addressed and appropriate recommendations made. Applicants will need to possess interest and enthusiasm for developing their therapeutic skills when working within the psychosexual and relationship environment. An experiential and didactic training can only be as good as the level of motivation, participation, and ability to self-support and to work independently of its student body. The course orientation believes that there is not one form of psychotherapy or counselling which, in its pure form, would be able to meet all the client's needs. In addition, research findings confirm that effectiveness in psychotherapy and psychosexual therapy depends very little on choice of theoretical orientation of the therapist. Instead it appears that the relationship between client and therapist is the most significant factor in successful psychotherapy, as such we work with students so that they can develop their practice and become ethical, competent integrative practitioners. We look forward to receiving your application. Judi Keshet-Orr & Bernd Leygraf - Course Directors

7 Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL) The LDPRT has been awarded 120 credits at Level 7 by Middlesex University. You may, as part of an APEL process, have these weighted at the university of your choice for on-going studies. The precise number of credits may vary from university to university and is determined by the exact programme of study you are applying for. Any graduate of LDPRT may approach any university with their diploma/credits. Specifically at Middlesex University 80 of these 120 credits will be calculated to progress to the Masters programme (Programmes: Work Based Learning & Interprofessional Learning, School of Health and Education); the remaining 100 credits will be gained through the Middx. system, 10 credits for a programme planning module, 30 credits for a compulsory research methods module and 60 credits for your final dissertation. Additional notes Judi Keshet-Orr and Bernd Leygraf are joint course directors and will facilitate the majority of the events particularly in year two; however other senior practitioner trainers, who are faculty members, will be invited to facilitate the group. Judi and Bernd will not always facilitate together but will be available via or by telephone should a trainee wish to speak to them if they are absent. Every student will be allocated not only an individual tutor but will also be a member of a tutorial group which will meet regularly. This is so that the course can support and guide students as appropriate. Your written work will be marked externally and internally and your results will be given to you one month after submission. These will be ratified by the external examiner to the course usually within one month of the course completing.. A minimum pass mark of 50% must be achieved for all written submissions, in both year one and year two. This course provides an adult learning community; the directors expect that you will be able to be self supporting and mature in your involvement with the course. We imagine that trainees will meet outside of the training in order to share information, gain support, and maintain motivation. It is important that all trainees attend every module. We strongly recommend that trainees are in personal counselling/psychotherapy. Furthermore students are advised to join COSRT. A list of psychosexual/relationship clinical supervisors will be provided for students. The second year of the training includes supervised clinical practice with individuals and couples. The second year formally commences in December. Students will receive a student hand book and file of relevant articles at commencement of the course which will form the foundation of a comprehensive resource directory. Alongside this students will receive the course complaints procedure and be asked to sign a confidentiality clause so that personal discussions held within course time are safeguarded.
