Charlie Waller Institute
We sponsor a Chair in Evidence-based Psychological Treatment at The Charlie Waller Institute (CWI). CWI is based at the University of Reading which provides excellent support for it. CWI, has a programme of training, education and research that contributes significantly to the Trust’s aim of ensuring that expert and evidence-based help is available when people need it. We also support other research studies that meet our charitable objectives and priorities.
Launched in January 2008, the Institute:
Trains clinicians in evidence-based psychological treatments in particular those recommended by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE);
Evaluates the effectiveness of the training to ensure it improves clinician knowledge, skills and patient outcome;
Undertakes research to add to the evidence base for effective psychological treatments.
Training at CWI takes the form of postgraduate part-time year-long courses (diploma and certificate) and one/two day accredited clinical workshops and seminars. These are delivered by world renowned expert clinicians who have been involved in developing and evaluating the treatments in research trials.
