Training for Audiologists
The Counselling Skills and Tinnitus Care Pathway (CSTCP) has been running since 2011/12, including in Northern Ireland across the 5 health regions, funded by Health & Social Care Northern Ireland (HSCNI) where Specialist Sensory Social Workers and Audiologists successfully completed the training.
The course is currently being updated, soon to be available as online training, but is to include 1-1 clinical supervision throughout the training period and beyond. The clinical supervision will be provided by both Dr Christine dePlacido, recently retired from Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh and Debbie Featherstone.
Although based upon the successful format of the CSTCP, there is expanded training in the use of CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) for Tinnitus. Audiologists can complete the training at their own pace, with the support of Clinical Supervision.
