A must have for anyone delivering or supporting low intensity interventions, 10 July 2010
A comprehensive guide to support and develop the invaluable work of Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners (PWPs) and other staff delivering low intensity CBT interventions. This is a long-awaited resource which provides a thorough theoretical and empirical grounding to low intensity interventions, and offers clear and concise guidance around the practical aspects of delivery. This is an absolute essential for trainee and qualified PWPs, and for those who want to support and expand the delivery of low intensity interventions within services. I would particularly recommend this to staff working alongside those delivering low intensity interventions e.g. High Intensity Practitioners, counsellors, GPs, practice nurses, and health promotion specialists to help them gain a more thorough understanding of the role and potential of this mode of delivery. I am a Service Manager/Clinical Lead within IAPT, and believed I was fairly well versed in low intensity interventions. However, this guide has not only focussed and refined my undertsanding but opened my eyes to novel and more widespread potentials of low intensity CBT interventions which will no doubt be key to the future of developing services.
