The BSc (Hons) in Reflective Therapeutic Practice is a one-year top up degree of both taught and individual study. Prospective students will already be qualified, experienced and practising counsellors and/or psychotherapists, who wish to enhance their qualification and clinical practice by undertaking a BSc (Hons) degree. The course is non-modality specific and is therefore open to any qualified counsellors and psychotherapists.
Students will enter the programme via an APL process, which consists of an initial interview, followed by the compilation and satisfactory passing of an APL Portfolio, in which they reflect on their previous experience.
Candidates who satisfactorily complete the APL Portfolio will then undertake the Reflective Inquiry Modules, which consist of three different modules held over 8 taught units. These modules prepare the student to undertake a literature review, then to take part in a reflective inquiry into an aspect of their clinical work and additionally supports them whilst they do so and then helps them to make meaning of and present their findings through a 5000 word Reflective Inquiry Essay, a Reflective inquiry Oral Presentation and a 2500 word reflection on the Oral Presentation.
This programme was developed and is delivered and assessed by Metanoia Institute awarded by and quality assured by Middlesex University.
