2 CONTENTS Welcome 3 Why City Colleges? 5 Student Testimonials 7 About our Lecturers 9 Qualification Information 10 How to enrol 13 Contact Us 14 Thank you for considering City Colleges School of Psychology marked the launch of City Colleges, and we are excited to add a suite of programmes in psychology and its various sub-fields to the existing courses on offer. These include general psychology, criminology and criminal psychology, counselling psychology, and cognitive behavioural therapy. Whether you are hoping to embark on a professional career in psychology or simply have a desire to gain knowledge of the field for its own sake, we should have something to interest you. We offer students individual attention in an environment that prioritises limited class sizes. Some lectures are streamed live, and recorded for later review online. At City Colleges, we believe that the student experience is, in large part, determined by the quality of the tuition provided. For this reason, we have assembled a team of inspiring lecturers who currently work in environments which require the application of theory to practice. We believe that our combined experience in delivering student-centred programmes will mark an important advancement in your journey in psychology. I look forward to meeting you soon, Yours faithfully, Eoin O Shea Director, School of Psychology, City Colleges. 2 3

3 WHY CITY COLLEGES? Psychology and related therapeutic professions constitute a growing field of professional and personal interest in Ireland today. Mental health is an extremely important aspect of our functioning at both an individual and societal level. In line with this trend, the numbers of psychology/therapy jobs in both the public and private sectors have seen dramatic increases over the past few decades. City Colleges meets the needs of such prospective students by providing a suite of courses geared for those either beginning their path in psychology or further developing their professional qualifications. We offer diploma-level courses, continuing professional development events, and are branching out into the provision of more intensive, comprehensive professional trainings. Lectures are delivered by those who possess both teaching and practical applied experience. At City Colleges, we believe this is of utmost importance in ensuring that theory is taught with a view to its practical application at some point in the future. Why City Colleges? Courses combine both theoretical and skills elements Student participation is encouraged Some courses are streamed live online via Moodle, and are also recorded for review City centre location in Dame Street, convenient for bus, LUAS, DART, etc. Southside Dublin location in Templeogue Study rooms and library in our Dame Street and Templeogue locations Limited class sizes. 4 5

4 STUDENT TESTIMONIALS Eoin O Shea lectured me in UCC some time ago and made such an impression. Not only did he contribute to my knowledge and that of my classmates, he is a great listener and genuinely cares about people, his subject and the dissemination of his extensive knowledge. What I remember most about Eoin is that he never made his students feel uncomfortable. As I was very much a beginner in this field, I appreciated this immensely and it was obvious he placed such a value on everyone s contribution. Adelina Syms, Doctoral Student I experienced Eoin as a very enthusiastic, organised and interactive lecturer on the MA Counselling Psychology program in University College Cork, where he taught on the theory of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. He was always very well prepared and the overall course-outline as well as each individual seminar was very good structured. Eoin s teaching style compromised a very good balance by delivering theoretical information in a clear and easily accessible form through excellent use of Powerpoint presentations, while also encouraging us students to reflect upon and actively participate in discussions on the teaching material. Insa Lichtsinn, MA Counselling Psychologist Coming from an Existential, Humanistic background I wasn t initially attracted to the more structured approach of CBT. However, I found Eoin s presentation to be well researched, balanced and informative. I now use CBT with certain clients who benefit from a more directive therapy. I enjoyed the Counselling Foundation lectures given by Eoin O Shea. He is a natural presenter, able to talk about the subject matter as opposed to just repeating slide material. I like to think aloud and question as I develop my understanding, and I found Eoin open to engaging with me in this way. Maurice Foley, Counselling Psychologist I found Paul Hayes to be calm and at the same time engaging in a way that really made people listen to what he said. His motivational interviewing workshop has really added to my work with clients, despite the fact that I come from a different theoretical background. Freja Petersen, Psychology Student Sheila Hawkins has really had an impact on my clinical work. She has a very dynamic style of teaching, and her obvious familiarity with applied settings makes her extensive experience clear. G.P., Trainee Counselling Psychologist I just wanted to say thanks again, I learned a lot and, even more importantly, it was a really enjoyable day! S. M. Psychologist in Training 6 7

6 QUALIFICATION INFORMATION Three programmes approved for CPD credits for members of the Psychological Society of Ireland. All four diploma programmes are awarded by City Colleges. In addition, three of the four (Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Diploma in Counselling Psychology and the Diploma in Criminology and Criminal Psychology) are recognized by the Psychological Society of Ireland (PSI) for the purposes of continuing professional development (CPD) credits for its members. This means that any practicing registered psychologist, having completed one of these three courses, is entitled to have the course counted towards CPD credits which must be accumulated over three-year CPD cycles. COURSE INFORMATION: Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is an empirically based psychological treatment for a variety of psychological problems (e.g. depression and anxiety). The Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy at City College aims to introduce students to the theoretical underpinnings of CBT and to the skills required for an in-depth knowledge of the practice of this therapeutic approach. CBT seeks to examine and challenge clients with the manner in which their thoughts, beliefs and attitudes to various events and circumstances negatively affect their mood and behaviour. Whilst open to the general public, we strongly encourage the course for those working in a variety of roles where contact with those experiencing psychological problems may be a feature, e.g. psychotherapist, medical doctors, nurses, social workers, psychologists etc. Upon graduation, students will have a greater understanding of their chosen area and may from there either progress to further studies or simply enjoy a greater insight into human thought and behaviour in their own lives. The course is therefore suitable for both those who have a professional interest in psychology as well as members of the general population with an interest in this exciting and rapidly developing field of study. Diploma in Counselling Psychology The Diploma in Counselling Psychology at City Colleges aims to introduce students to the main theories, strategies, and skills of counselling psychology. Theories covered are derived from the three main basic therapeutic frameworks; humanistic, psychodynamic, and cognitivebehavioural. Students will graduate with a sound basic understanding of these three main schools and specific examples of each from a theoretical perspective. Attention will also be paid to broad differences between counselling psychology and related professions such as counselling, psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, etc. Basic skills training will also be covered. Finally, students will gain experience of research through a project to be completed within one month of completion of lectures. This course has been approved for CPD credits for members of the Psychological Society of Ireland. Diploma in Criminology and Criminal Psychology The purpose of this programme is to equip learners with a basic understanding of the fields of Criminology (the scientific study of crime) and Criminal Psychology from a historical, contemporary and progressive perspective. In addition, fundamental psychological concepts will be considered, including Personality Disorders, Learning Theory and Social Psychology. These will be related to the various theories of crime and offending. At the end of the course, learners will have a detailed understanding of the psychology and nature of criminal conduct. This course has been approved for CPD credits for members of the PSI. Diploma in Psychology The Diploma in Psychology at City Colleges aims to introduce students to the main topics often taught on modern psychology courses. These topics include developmental and lifespan psychology, cognitive psychology, social psychology, biological basis of behaviour, personality theory and individual differences, abnormal psychology, research design and methods, and psychological therapies. Students will also gain experience of research through a project to be completed within one month of completion of lectures. The focus of the Diploma is theoretical although discussion and practical examples of relevance will be discussed throughout. Graduates will possess a broad, basic understanding of modern psychology following completion of the Diploma. They may use such learning to decide if further studies in psychology would be of interest to them. Alternatively, students may simply complete the Diploma out of interest regarding the manner in which modern psychology aims to investigate and better understand the human mind and behaviour. Professionals in related disciplines such as counselling, etc, may also be eligible to consider completion of the course for CPD (continuing professional development) purposes. However, the Diploma in Psychology does not carry PSI CPD credits, since practicing, registered psychologists would have already covered this material as part of their primary degree in psychology
