The Child and Adolescent Psychotherapeutic Counselling Masters degree is part of a B.A.C.P. and U.K.A.P.C. accredited route to becoming a child and adolescent psychotherapeutic counsellor. Read more
The Child and Adolescent Psychotherapeutic Counselling Masters degree is part of a B.A.C.P. and U.K.A.P.C. accredited route to becoming a child and adolescent psychotherapeutic counsellor. To become an accredited practitioner candidates are also required to hold the Advanced Diploma in Child and Adolescent Counselling. The increased emphasis on the integration of education, social services and health in the delivery of services to children under the Children's Act 2004, make this route particularly pertinent and valuable, not only to teachers but to a wide range of practitioners within the area.

See the website http://www.graduate.study.cam.ac.uk/courses/directory/ededmeepc

Course detail

The four main elements of the route are:

1. The Therapeutic Relationship and Therapeutic Processes
This element explores an integrative approach to the therapeutic relationship. It will include a study of the working alliance, the transferential relationship and the person to person relationship.

2. Professional Issues in Therapy with Children
In these sessions, the key professional, ethical and legal issues surrounding the practice of therapeutic counselling and research on counselling are examined. Since the context of work with children and adolescents is rapidly changing, with increased emphasis on working with other agencies, systems and groups as well as with individuals, it is important to understand different contexts and the different modes of working within them.

3. Understanding Child and Adolescent Development
This element explores the key theoretical frameworks for individual and group development in childhood and adolescence and their implications for therapeutic practices.

4. Developing Children's Social and Emotional Well Being
This element explores how children's social and emotional well being can be developed in proactive and educational, as well as therapeutic, ways.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the programme students will have:

- Demonstrated a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of the theory and practice of an integrative, relational, developmental and ecosystemic approach to psychological therapy with children and young people
- Shown abilities and skills to work therapeutically with children and young people
- Demonstrated a highly developed ethical attitude both in therapeutic practice and research
- Shown a comprehensive understanding of research techniques, and a thorough knowledge of the literature applicable to their specific topic;
- Demonstrated originality in the application of knowledge, together with a practical understanding of how research and enquiry are used to create and interpret knowledge in their field;
- Shown abilities in the critical evaluation of current research and research techniques and methodologies;
- Demonstrated self-direction, originality and ethical awareness in tackling and solving problems, and acted autonomously in the planning and implementation of research.

Format

The course is composed of two key elements: (i) the research methods training course and (ii) the 'Child and Adolescent Psychotherapeutic Counselling' thematic route. Teaching time is split between the two elements, with 32 hours of teaching being given to research methods and 64 hours being given to the subject specific content. The course is taught through a mixture of lectures, smaller group seminars and individual supervisions.

Written feedback is provided on the thesis by two independent assessors. Informally, feedback will also be provided through regular supervisions. Supervisors are required to provide a report on student progress which can be viewed by the student through CGSRS.

Assessment

Thesis: Up to 20,000 words.

Students following the two year MEd programme are required to submit the following in Year 1:
Essay 1: 6,000-6,500 words.
Essay 2: 6,000-6,500 words.

Continuing

Students wishing to continue from the Masters in Education to PhD or Ed D are required to achieve:

1) an average of 70 across both sections with the thesis counting as double-weighted (eg: (Essay 1 + Essay 2 + thesis + thesis) divided by 4 = 70 or above.

This MRes study aims to understand how adults in mid-life experience the relationship between their work and their health. This is with a particular focus on how they see their careers developing in future and how this relates to their health and well-being status. Read more

This MRes study aims to understand how adults in mid-life experience the relationship between their work and their health. This is with a particular focus on how they see their careers developing in future and how this relates to their health and well-being status.

Increasing life spans, economic pressures, and advancing or flexible retirement age mean that individuals may be working for longer in their lives. Older workers may have health conditions to manage. Employment may be detrimental to mental or physical health, or it may help to promote well-being and extend functional independence. This is dependent on a variety of factors including job characteristics and the relationship between the individual and work. Thus, the orientation to their career that adults adopt in mid-life may have far-reaching impacts on their health trajectories. This mixed methods study seeks to explore those orientations and their health implications as understood by the workers themselves.

The literature review will explore:

• Relevant conceptualisation and measurement of health and well-being

• Well-being and life-span development

• Career development in mid to late adulthood, including the literature on ‘third age’ guidance

• Contemporary legal, economic, and socio-political factors that are extending working life, and increasing pressures on older workers.

The empirical study will be a mixed methods design, combining in-depth qualitative research interviews, followed by a survey generating quantitative evidence. The survey will combine use of a validated well-being measure with a bespoke survey design informed by the literature review and the interviews.

We are the first university in the United Kingdom to offer a fully globalised course developed in collaboration with key institutions in India, Australia and the United States. Our unique distance learning MSc course can be accessed worldwide and takes a global perspective of civilian and military veteran and family well-being.

See the website http://www.anglia.ac.uk/study/postgraduate/global-military-veteran-and-family-studies

Our postgraduate course has evolved in keeping with ongoing military strategy which considers culture as a tool of war, along with soft diplomacy and health engagement. Our course is delivered in close collaboration with key military educational institutions in the United States, Australia and India and delivered from a cross disciplinary perspective of social policy, military strategy, psychology, medicine, nursing, social work, leadership and education.

The curriculum is founded upon the concept of a ‘global veteran’ encompassing military and civilian personnel who have deployed to conflict zones, delivered humanitarian assistance, peacekeeping, peace-making and policing at both home and abroad. The course is aimed at both military and civilian personnel who are involved in the care and well-being of the ‘global veteran’ and those caught in the crossfire, such as refugees and government and non-government workers. We strongly encourage applications from international students currently or who would like to work in this field, as we appreciate that care of the ‘global veteran’ and their families is a worldwide phenomenon.

The first of its kind, our global curriculum equips students with the skills and theoretical knowledge needed to ensure the health and well-being of the ‘global veteran’ both across and within national borders. You will explore the biological, psychological and social impact of working in dangerous and hazardous conflict zones and in addition, will have portable leadership and management skills to respond to humanitarian crisis as and when needed.

Students will also have the opportunity to undertake short optional elective placements at key institutions in the United States and India and to take part in ongoing global educational research projects, as a means to broaden their research skills. The course is embedded in the Veterans and Families Institute and the curriculum and teaching team support the concept of education based research as a means in impact upon veteran care and well-being from a worldwide perspective.

Delivered online through our virtual classroom the teaching takes the form of interactive lectures and discussion forums, with regular one to one tutorials and is led by Dr Lyndsay Baines an expert in veteran care and a team of leading global academics and practitioners in the field.

Careers

On graduation at PG Cert level you will find you have new perceptions of the services you take responsibility for, allowing you to think differently about both your client group and your choice of helping strategies. You’ll gain increased ability to focus on the specialist experience of the client group and to adjust services where necessary.

When you complete the PG Diploma, you will also be able to focus on developing strategies that guide choices about services to make sure resources are used effectively. You'll be well-placed to advise senior managers and present arguments that persuade colleagues and sponsors to provide services for veteran clients that optimise the most effective outcomes. Offering this specialist resource will open doors to your career progression.

At Masters Level you will contribute to the extension of knowledge in the area of veteran mental health and undertake research that will have benefits for services and client outcomes. Career paths may be either towards service management or as a specialist practitioner or researcher.

The Child and Adolescent Psychotherapeutic Counselling Masters degree is part of a B.A.C.P. and U.K.A.P.C. accredited route to becoming a child and adolescent psychotherapeutic counsellor. To become an accredited practitioner candidates are also required to hold the Advanced Diploma in Child and Adolescent Counselling. The increased emphasis on the integration of education, social services and health in the delivery of services to children under the Children's Act 2004, make this route particularly pertinent and valuable, not only to teachers but to a wide range of practitioners within the area.

Course detail

The four main elements of the route are:

1. The Therapeutic Relationship and Therapeutic Processes
This element explores an integrative approach to the therapeutic relationship. It will include a study of the working alliance, the transferential relationship and the person to person relationship.

2. Professional Issues in Therapy with Children
In these sessions, the key professional, ethical and legal issues surrounding the practice of therapeutic counselling and research on counselling are examined. Since the context of work with children and adolescents is rapidly changing, with increased emphasis on working with other agencies, systems and groups as well as with individuals, it is important to understand different contexts and the different modes of working within them.

3. Understanding Child and Adolescent Development
This element explores the key theoretical frameworks for individual and group development in childhood and adolescence and their implications for therapeutic practices.

4. Developing Children's Social and Emotional Well Being

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the programme, students will have:

- Demonstrated a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of the theory and practice of an integrative, relational, developmental and ecosystemic approach to psychological therapy with children and young people

The Master of Occupational Therapy is a dynamic and diverse degree, focusing on functional outcomes. Occupational Therapists are practical problem solvers and have a broad perspective of health and well being, underpinned by a solid scientific base.

Occupational Therapists are in high demand in hospitals, mental health, aged care, disability and rehabilitation environments. It is predicted that the demand for OT's will rise significantly with the introduction of the National Disability Scheme in Australia (NDIS).

About the program

Bond University’s Master of Occupational Therapy program is designed to produce highly competitive graduates with comprehensive clinical skills as well as possessing a solid business acumen and research experience. It is the first Occupational Therapy Masters in Australia to offer you the opportunity to complete a clinical research project or undertake business electives in preparation for a career in private practice. You will engage in research training before specialising in one of two elective pathways: Clinically-focused Research Pathway – the clinically focused research pathway culminates in an individual research project that may be eligible for publication. This pathway prepares you for entry into higher research degrees and careers in research and academia, as well as bolstering research networks; or Business-focused Research Pathway – enables you to undertake business electives that will enable you to undertake management roles, and better prepare you to work in the growing private sector. The pathway culminates in an industry research project where you will apply both research and business skills. You will be taught by academics and industry staff who are current practicing clinicians with up to date industry knowledge. 

Professional outcomes

The Bond University Master of Occupational Therapy program has been designed to prepare graduates with the professional qualifications required to practice as an Occupational Therapist in Australia.

Graduates of the program will be able to apply their experience across a wide range of areas including:

  • Private practice
  • Public and private hospitals
  • Independent living centres and rehabilitation facilities
  • Schools and tertiary education
  • Workplace health
  • Community health centres
  • Mental health services
  • Aged care

Graduates may be eligible to progress to further post-graduate research, leading to potential career options in research organisations and academia.

Structure and subjects

Learning and teaching methodology

The Master of Occupational Therapy combines lectures, tutorials, workshops, case studies, fieldwork and simulation to embed the skills and knowledge needed to succeed as an occupational therapist. The program focuses on real-world learning with fieldwork opportunities in most courses to help students link theory to practice.

Public awareness of hazards and risks has enhanced the importance of safety assessment and management in today’s increasingly litigious society. Read more

Programme Background

Public awareness of hazards and risks has enhanced the importance of safety assessment and management in today’s increasingly litigious society. Worldwide the burden of responsibility for health and safety is shifting towards those who own, manage and work in industrial and commercial organisations. Legal reform is tending to replace detailed industry specific legislation with a modern approach in which, where possible, goals and general principles are set and the onus is on organisations to show how they manage to achieve these goals.

The management of safety and risk needs to be integrated into the overall management of the organisation. It should be appropriate and cost-effective without dampening the innovative entrepreneurial spirit of employees with inflexible bureaucratic rules and procedures. An organisation’s exposure to potential hazards needs to be managed so as to reduce the chance of loss and mitigate any effects. Risk and safety issues need to be evaluated in a structured and calculated manner but in the light of an overall organisational strategy.

The MSc/PG Diploma programme in Safety and Risk Management aims to provide students with advanced knowledge of risk assessment techniques, the public and individual perception of risk, and how decisions are made in competitive business markets. The focus is on practical applications of safety methodologies, ergonomics and human factors, and safety and risk management techniques.

All of these skills will be drawn together to undertake complex qualitative and quantitative risk assessments. The core of the programme is the management of safety, but it is set within a broader remit where safety issues are part of a general risk management system with a balance of financial, quality and environmental concerns. The overall aim of the programme is to develop students’ skills and personal qualities to be able to undertake safety studies and manage safety and risk to the best national and international standards.
