From January 2007 Metanoia Institute has invited applications for the award of DPsych by Public Works. This award is designed on the same principles and assessed by the same criteria as the DPsych (Doctorate in Psychotherapy by Professional Studies).

This award is designed to appeal to UK and international senior and accomplished practitioners who have already made a substantial contribution to the field of psychological therapy through a range of publications and/or public works such as setting up and running a counselling service, policy documents, strategic plans, major organisational change, innovative and successful training programmes etc, which have been pivotal in the field and commended, reviewed and respected by peers. Candidates have been drawn from the UK, Europe, the US and Far East.

Candidates undertake an intensive audit of a group of their existing achievements with the guidance of an Academic Adviser. The Institute normally admits no more than 6 candidates annually.

This is a Middlesex University programme and qualification, jointly developed, delivered and assessed by Middlesex and Metanoia Institute and quality assured by Middlesex University. This programme is a collaborative research initiative between Metanoia Institute and Middlesex University.
