PlaceMood Disorder Centre

Online and face-to-face in room G17/18 (Mood Disorders Centre, University of Exeter)

This is a three-day intensive course developed originally in collaboration with the University of Exeter’s Mood Disorders Centre which has a brief to research and provide treatment for depression according to NICE guidelines.

Behavioural couples therapy is one of the recognised NICE therapies for the effective treatment of depression. Current research suggests people with depression may benefit most from both behavioural and empathic strategies, which the Exeter Model teaches. The Model represents a collation of the purely behavioural techniques indicated by the RCT manualised research informing the NICE recommendation and also the systemically informed techniques that are both behavioural and or empathic identified by the UK Expert Reference Group on Couple Competencies. The teaching draws from the Exeter Model manual and will include role play, case material, group work and DVD examples of clinical work within the Exeter Model.
