Course Overview

This course is designed for those interested in developing skills and knowledge for the assessment and solution-focused management of people with certain physical and mental health conditions.

It will be of particular relevance to people with a background in the social sciences, mental health or nursing.

A background in psychology is desirable as you will have a strong foundation in mental health problems and research methods, but it is not essential.

It is also suitable for practitioners in health, mental health and the forensic equivalent (including all aspects of health and justice) who are currently working with people benefitting from such interventions. There is also clear potential for applicants to be multi-disciplinary and to come from public or private settings.

We offer flexible study modes and, after passing the relevant number of modules, you can choose to step off the programme to gain awards of PGCert and PGDip, or continue to the full MSc respectively.

You can study this course over three years and dedicate the third year to completing your dissertation.

What will this course cover?

Psychosocial interventions relate to an individual's psychological development and how this development interacts with a social environment. Generally psychosocial interventions cover psychological interventions (for example classified into behavioural, cognitive, humanistic, motivational etc) and social approaches (for example focusing the work on families or wider social networks such a local communities). Students on the MSc, therefore, are exposed to the underlying principles and frameworks of interventions such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Family Intervention Skills, Motivational Enhancement Skills, Positive Psychology (Skills & Interventions) etc.

What are my career prospects?

On successful completion of this programme, you will have gained a strong understanding of the principle concepts, theories and effectiveness of psychosocial interventions.

This course will also give you the requisite foundation skills and conceptual understanding required for the engagement, assessment, and formulation of the needs of people who experience particular conditions including their significant social environment.

You will also be able to critically reflect and problem-solve to develop and apply creative solutions when dealing with certain clinical issues.

Throughout the course, you will be introduced to, and explore, the skills and frameworks for the delivery of specific interventions.

All of these are questions that those who study and work in Clinical and Psychological Epidemiology seek to explore. If you find yourself interested in the answers to these questions, and more broadly in the relationship between the psychological condition of people and their physical health, then Clinical and Psychosocial Epidemiology may be the right choice for you!

“There is no health without mental health”, Secretary-General of the United Nations Ban-Ki Moon famously stated. Psychological and social factors have a major influence on healthy and active ageing ( 'Healthy Ageing'). Mental problems are responsible for 13 per cent of the total disease burden worldwide. Considering our own experiences, most of us will know someone struggling with their mental health, and the number of people with mental health problems continues to rise. This puts enormous pressure on the individuals and families affected as well as on the wider socio- economic system.

Why in Groningen?

The focus on psychosocial factors in addition to biomedical factors is unique. The result is students being able to view problems from different perspectives, and having a broader overview of the field.

Job perspectives

If desired, our programme guarentees a smooth transition between the Master and a PhD, at any univeristy worldwide, but also prepares for key positions in any organisation, public or private, concerned with research or its applications.

Graduates of the Research Master programme are given priority in the allocation of PhD programmes at the University of Groningen.

Job examples

- Municipal Health Services
- Public Health Institutes
- Health Insurance Companies
- Ministries of Health

Due to the interactive nature of the programme, students have many opportunities to get involved in ongoing research and studies, and to advance their full array of research skills.

Linked to the course is the Research Institute SHARE, part of the Graduate School of Medical Sciences of the University Medical Center Groningen and of the University of Groningen. SHARE's mission is to elucidate factors related to health, notably healthy ageing. This is achieved by research on determinants and consequences of ageing, incident disease, quality of life, care and cure, as well as by training researchers in the area of health research.

Our MSc Psychosocial Interventions for Psychosis course is a pathway of our Advanced Practice Interventions for Mental Health (APIMH) programme and aims to help mental health practitioners to work more effectively with people with psychosis. Read more

Our MSc Psychosocial Interventions for Psychosis course is a pathway of our Advanced Practice Interventions for Mental Health (APIMH) programme and aims to help mental health practitioners to work more effectively with people with psychosis.

APIMH has been designed to respond and contribute to the modernisation of mental health care delivery and service design, and this particular pathway is based on robust evidence indicating that structured psychosocial interventions incorporating cognitive behavioural and family-based approaches can be extremely effective and beneficial for people with psychosis.

This evidence forms the basis of national policy guidelines (NICE, 2014) recommending that such interventions should be offered as standard to all people experiencing a psychotic illness. Our Year 1 course units have been developed specifically to allow graduates from the PGCert level to be able to conduct assessments and deliver family intervention to these approved standards.

You will attend the University for one day per week during term-time and the equivalent of one day per week in practice to achieve the practical skills outcomes associated with some course units. You will be required to identify a suitable practice supervisor/mentor to oversee the clinical and/or practice work required.

Aims

We aim to enhance access to, and the effectiveness of, mental health and social care services that are evidence-based, multidisciplinary and focused on the needs of service users and their carers.

This course aims to equip qualified mental health practitioners with advanced knowledge and skills to enhance both their own and others' practice, and contribute to innovations and developments in mental health care and services.

Teaching and learning

You will participate in a range of teaching and learning methods including lectures, small-group work, student-led seminars, and online learning.

There is a strong emphasis on skills development through the use of role play, experiential exercises and analysis, and elements of supervised practice and practice mentorship to achieve practical skills outcomes for some course units.

In addition, you will undertake independent study to further develop and consolidate your learning.

All pathways involve sessions by users and/or carers, who are seen as essential contributors to student learning as experts by experience.

Coursework and assessment

We use a variety of assessments within each course unit and across the course as a whole. All assessments require you to integrate knowledge and understanding and apply this to your own area of practice relevant to the outcomes of each unit and the focus of each pathway.

Assessment methods include essays, case studies, assessed seminar presentations, literature reviews and recorded clinical simulations. For some course units, you are also required to submit practice supervision/or practice mentorship records.

The dissertation for the MSc requires you to undertake an extended written piece of work (12,000-15,000 words) that focuses on a specific aspect of mental health practice in the form of an extended literature-based review/proposal for practice development.

Course unit details

The programme consists of pathway-specific and core/compulsory course units. Pathway-specific units focus on the following themes:

Course units include:

Year 1

  • Assessment, screening and formulation
  • Family intervention in psychosis and bipolar disorder

Year 2

Core course units are shared with students studying other pathways and programmes, but retain a pathway-specific focus through group work and assessments. Core course units focus on the following themes:

  • Research and evidence base for practice and different approaches and methods used in social research
  • Developing Practice and Managing Change
  • Cognitive behavioural therapy for psychosis

On completion of the taught units of the programme (PGDip), successful students who meet progression requirements are able to continue onto their research dissertation for the MSc. The dissertation enables students, with the support of an individual supervisor, to undertake an extended written piece of work which focuses on a specific aspect of Mental Health Practice in the form of an extended literature based review/proposal for practice development.

Career opportunities

Graduates of this course have taken up senior positions at national and regional level leading strategic developments and making significant contributions to research in this area of practice.

This multidisciplinary Master's programme explores debates on 'race' and racism, multiculture and postcoloniality. Read more
This multidisciplinary Master's programme explores debates on 'race' and racism, multiculture and postcoloniality. It explores connections between histories of empire and contemporary social formations and inequalities in the UK, and considers how local debates on 'race' and racism are shaped by the global geopolitics of the twenty-first century.

The programme explores debates on empire and the formation of modern Britain and contemporary transnational political communities, social identities and urban cultures. The MA aims to draw connections between interlocking colonial histories across the globe and our ordinary, local, everyday life here in contemporary Britain.

The programme focuses on subjects such as histories of colonisation, systems of slavery, the concept of 'race' and the invention of 'the West'; colonial cultures, class, nationalisms, 'respectability' and the invention of 'whiteness'; histories of criminalisation and imprisonment; human rights; 'the war on terror'; diaspora, place and belonging; psychoanalysis and 'race', 'hybridity', 'mixedness', 'whiteness', 'race' and 'beauty' and 'race', gender, sexuality and desire. It offers the opportunity to study a wide range of different subjects in this broad multidisciplinary area.

The MA is convened by academics who have interests in racialisation, postcoloniality, urban multiculture and psychoanalysis. You can also choose from a range of option modules convened by other academics in other departments across the College.

This innovative, interdisciplinary postgraduate programme will be of interest to those who want to develop careers in social research, education, law, journalism, youth and community work, urban planning, housing, politics, the arts and cultural industries, health and social care, and numerous other areas. It will also be of interest to those who wish to pursue an academic career in sociology, cultural studies, postcolonial studies, urban studies, psychosocial studies, or in the social sciences or humanities more generally and to those who simply wish to develop an advanced understanding of 'race' and racism, multiculture and postcoloniality.

Why study this course at Birkbeck?

The programme introduces you to different historical and political debates and theoretical perspectives in the broad multidisciplinary area of 'race' and racism, multiculture and postcoloniality.
You will participate in a vibrant, stimulating and diverse intellectual environment. There is a Race Forum and several other research institutes at Birkbeck that focus on relevant subject areas.
The programme is flexibly designed for students from all backgrounds to pursue their own particular research and professional interests.
