University of Edinburgh - David Gillanders (ACT/RFT/MF; PhD/MSc; United Kingdom)

The department of Clinical and Health Psychology is situated in the School of Health in Social Science. We offer two programmes at Doctoral level: PhD in Clinical Psychology which can be taken at distance and over 3 to 6 years, or the professional practice Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (DClinPsychol). Click on the links to find out more. The DClinPsychol is fully funded by the National Health Service and students are employed by the NHS, therefore it is only open to people who already have eligibility to work in the UK. A Tier 4 visa is not sufficient. Both of these degrees require a substantial piece of original research work.

We also offer a range of taught MSc programmes, including a British Psychological Society Accredited Conversion programme: Psychology of Mental Health. We also offer a MSc level training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. In these programmes a Masters level dissertation is produced which may involve empirical research, and some of these projects could be in a field related to contextual behavioural science.

A number of staff in the subject area are pursuing research work related to contextual behavioural science, you can look on our research and staff pages to find out more.
