Liesbeth Tip is a registered Clinical psychologist (HCPC), trained Cognitive Behavioural Therapist and accredited CBT scientist (VGCT, The Netherlands). She is a Clinical Fellow and PhD student at the University of Edinburgh, School of Health in Social Science. Her PhD subject is 'Social anxiety in psychosis'. She teaches on the Masters of Psychological therapies (https://www.ed.ac.uk/health/subject-areas/clinical-psychology/postgraduate-taught/msc-psychological-therapies). This Master's programme offers courses on CBT for mental health professionals (not just for psychologists!). The CBT courses have a blended structure and some courses and course elements can be followed online. Adapting CBT practice to remotely delivered CBT is part of the curriculum. Liesbeth is also involved in the development of the new Centre for Psychological Therapies at the University of Edinburgh, which is linked to the Master's programme.
