The DECAP programme is recognised as being one of the leading training courses for EPs in the UK and Ireland. The three-year funding model makes it possible for students/trainees to retain close links with the programme's tutors and to attend the university throughout all three years of the programme (unlike equivalent programmes in Great Britain, there is no need or requirement for students/trainees to seek employment during the second and third years of training).
Amongst the benefits of this model of funding and course design is the capacity to provide not only close supervision, including research supervision, but also an Intermodular Teaching Programme which includes foundation training (and, in several aspects, qualifications) in:
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy
Family Systemic Therapy
Incredible Years Parenting Programme
Video Interaction Guidance
