This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced CBT therapist to join the research team working on a large multi-centre randomised controlled trial (RCT) led from the University of Bristol. It is funded by the NIHR Programme Grants for Applied Research (PGfAR) scheme. The post holder will work alongside another 0.4FTE therapist who is established in the role.
The aim of the INTERACT programme is to integrate online cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) materials with input from an accredited CBT therapist to deliver CBT to people with depression. The research team have developed an online platform that integrates therapist led CBT with online materials in a novel and flexible way. We have piloted the platform and found it to be acceptable to both therapists and patients. The INTERACT trial will determine the clinical and cost effectiveness of this integrated approach to delivering CBT.
The CBT practitioner will work using the standard Beckian model for depression. Training in use of the platform and regular expert supervision will be provided.
The CBT practitioner will be a mental health professional with current BABCP accreditation. One part-time post (0.6FTE) is available. Funding is available for 12 months in the first instance. The post is available for an immediate start.
A DBS check will be required in order to obtain a research passport which is needed for the role.
