City University London

Course Introduction

The course has been developed in partnership with the charity, Young Minds. It provides the skills, knowledge and awareness in promoting child and adolescent psychological development, managing risk and resilience, early identification, assessment and formulation of child and adolescent mental health problems, evidence based psycho'social interventions and contemporary issues in child and adolescent mental health. The course uses a sound evidence base to prepare students to participate in a specialist workforce where the development of ethical and culturally sensitive practice and the placement of the service user and carer at the centre of decision'making and service re'design are core values. Students enhance their ability to critically evaluate their work or the work of others who care for individuals and families where there are significant concerns and vulnerability. They also develop capacities to maintain the balance between working collaboratively while maintaining safe professional boundaries.

Course Modules

Modules include: Introduction to research methods and applied data analysis; critical approaches to advanced practice; plus optional modules.

Course Additional Entry

Applicants should hold a second class Honours degree or the equivalent from an international institution in a relevant subject.
