Charlie Waller Institute

We sponsor a Chair in Evidence-based Psychological Treatment at the University of Reading with clinical training and education being delivered by The Charlie Waller Institute (CWI).

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 and take part in other research studies that meet our charitable objectives and priorities.

Launched in January 2008, CWI:

- 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.

Courses and accredited clinical workshops are delivered by world renowned expert clinicians who have been involved in developing and evaluating the treatments in research trials. 

You can find evidence of CWI’s impact here.

 

Training at CWI takes the form of postgraduate part-time year-long courses (diploma and certificate) and one or 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.
