Therapy types being practiced:
Provision of Therapy
TYPE A - General psychotherapeutic skills that are provided in primary care, secondary and tertiary care and are part of the basic mental health skills for all practitioners. General psychotherapeutic skills are delivered within a uni-disciplinary care package and would be informed by both generic and formal psychotherapeutic approaches
TYPE B - A complete stand alone psychological treatment intervention informed by a range of different models tailored to individual goals. Service users could be referred for a specific Type B psychological therapy directly or as a component of CPA. Individuals who had undertaken further training in a specific therapy model would provide these therapies.
TYPE C - A complete stand alone delineated psychotherapeutic intervention based upon clear theoretical underpinnings with implications for the use of different interventions to achieve different aims. The provider would be formally trained in approaches such as CBT, CAT, psychoanalytic and/or systemic therapies. Again, service users could be referred directly or as a component of CPA.

The definitions are for guidance.
On occasion a practitioner may not fit neatly into this system of classification. In these instances factor such as length and breath of supervised experience should be taken into account in determining practitioner type
Type A practitioner
Type B practitioner
Type C practitioner.
The approach has been national / regional and local
Involving all relevant clinical staff (including reception staff)
