Are you looking to develop the competencies that are required to become an Approved Clinician for the purposes of the Mental Health Act 1983?

Are you looking to develop the competencies that are required to become an Approved Clinician for the purposes of the Mental Health Act 1983? Do you want to enhance your ability to manage challenges that you face within a mental health context as a psychiatrist, psychologist, nurse, occupational therapist or social worker?

As a professional practice course, there are no specific topics that must be covered. Instead the emphasis is very much on what you need to study in order to prepare yourself for the Approved Clinician role and/or to continue your professional development.

At the start you will be encouraged to write a learning proposal that identifies your specific learning objectives. You will then work towards these objectives through undertaking further continuing professional development (CPD), reflecting on your CPD and ultimately through completion of a work-based project. On completion you should have developed the skills and knowledge you need for you to make an application to be an Approved Clinician, if that is your goal.

Please note, optional module choices will be grouped and will run in designated blocks, meaning some module combinations will not be possible. Although every effort is made to ensure that these modules are offered, there may be occasions, for example due to staff sabbaticals, where a module may not be offered or module running order may change.

Learn From The Best

Northumbria has built up an enviable reputation for practical, innovative law courses. The combination of teaching excellence and workplace relevance ensures that standards remain consistently high. We are committed to postgraduate studies that will enhance your professional career.

Our team of tutors is led by a solicitor who has considerable experience of representing mental health clients in first-tier tribunals and court hearings. She is also a member of the Law Society’s Mental Health Accreditation Scheme.

The quality of our law teaching has been recognised through a variety of awards and nominations. These include Law Teacher of the Year Award, the Attorney General’s Pro Bono Award, and Northern Law Awards.

Teaching And Assessment

This is a professional practice course and, unlike most courses at Northumbria, there are no prescribed topics. You will be offered the opportunity to attend five optional CPD days. You will also undertake at least one day of CPD away from the University.

Your learning will be tailored to the objectives that you identify in your learning proposal, related to the core elements of the Approved Clinician competency framework.

During the one-year course you will study two modules: ‘Academic Recognition of CPD in Mental Health Law’ and ‘Work-Based Project’. Reflection upon your learning and practice will be an essential part of the learning experience. To encourage this, you will be allocated to a learning set with fellow students. Assessment will be through individual assignments.

Module Overview
Year One
LW7000 - Academic Recognition of CPD in Mental Health Law (Core, 30 Credits)
LW7001 - Work Based Project in Mental Health Law (Core, 30 Credits)

Year Two
LW7001 - Work Based Project in Mental Health Law (Core, 30 Credits)

Learning Environment

As a distance learner you will have full access to our eLearning Portal, ‘Blackboard Learn’. Blackboard Learn brings together all aspects of course management as well as assessment and feedback. You can contact tutors in other ways too, including by email and telephone.

You will also have online access to Northumbria’s library, which has half a million electronic books that you can read whenever or wherever you need them. Our library was ranked #2 in the Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey for 2015 and, since 2010, it has been accredited by the UK Government for Customer Service Excellence.

Our specialist Law Practice Library contains practitioner materials as well as a wide variety of journals and law reports. The range and depth of resources reflects our position as the largest law school in the North East region.

Research-Rich Learning

Northumbria’s strong research ethos is an essential aspect of how you will develop as a critical, reflective and independent thinker.

Our academics are at the cutting edge of current legal issues, which will enhance your learning experience. They will discuss their own research as it relates to the topics you will study, and ask you to explore current knowledge and identify further questions to be addressed.

Additional research-informed experiences will be linked to your work-based project. We will equip you to undertake and present research that is relevant to the particular challenges and issues that you’re facing in your practice.

Give Your Career An Edge

By completing the two modules in this course you will be able to develop the skills required to demonstrate competencies for becoming an Approved Clinician. The documentation from the course will be invaluable as you build your portfolio for the approval process.

Your Future

For a significant proportion of students, the next step after this course is to seek approval as an Approved Clinician. You will have essential knowledge of mental health legislation, related codes of practice, national and local policy, assessment, report writing, communication, care planning, leadership, multi-disciplinary working and equality and diversity.

Whatever your future, you’ll have the transferable skills that employers expect from Northumbria graduates from Northumbria University. These include the ability to reflect on your practice and make appropriate recommendations for improved workplace practice, the ability to handle the legal and ethical issues that may arise in mental health contexts, and the ability to formulate balanced judgements.

Our students come to us from a variety of backgrounds and jobs and with widely differing undergraduate degrees.

Psychosocial studies is the study of the relationship between individuals and their social worlds. It’s a cross-disciplinary course united by the belief that, to understand the contemporary human world, we need to use ideas from psychology, psychoanalysis, sociology, literature, history and cultural studies.

Individuals are psychologically complex and we focus on the interactions between them and the entwinement of that complexity with the social world.

Are human beings best understood as products of biology and evolution with instincts that can be tamed or liberated within different social contexts? Or do characteristics need to be understood as products of more distinctly human cultural processes that are subject to historical shifts? How do we treat each other? How can we live together and understand each other?

We apply these questions to practical applications on a distance learning course which allows you to study in a way that accommodates your work and family commitments and lets you learn at your own pace.

WHAT YOU WILL STUDY

This part-time course begins with a module that introduces the forces which led to the development of psychosocial studies as a distinct area of inquiry and by identifying the subject’s key themes.

The second and third modules include an analysis of the theoretical approaches to individuality and the examination of an influential set of ideas which suggests that individual psychological development can only be understood in terms of the social relationships surrounding it. The fourth module focuses on the application of psychosocial studies.

The course concludes by teaching research strategies in the fifth module, providing you with key skills to help you complete your final dissertation module.

Our students come from a variety of different backgrounds, from teaching and psychotherapy to fashion and social work, and we encourage you to choose a dissertation subject that reflects your individual area of interest.

YOUR FUTURE CAREER

This MA course started in September 2013 and has already attracted students from a range of careers who are keen to improve their understanding of psychosocial studies and to apply them to their current roles.

Our students have included a psychiatrist, a teacher and an expert in fashion. It’s evidence that the course is relevant to a range of careers.

The trend towards globalisation and an increasingly diverse society is changing the way many people live and work. This course enables you to adapt to these changes and to relate psychosocial developments to your everyday working life and to your management of situations and staff.

It also provides you with an opportunity to change direction in your career and to seek out a new role which requires more psychosocial expertise.

By working closely with our academic staff, you will gain an insight into how they use their psychosocial skills in practical situations.
