Taught at our Parkgate Road Campus, our MSc course offers the opportunity for experienced therapeutic practitioners to study the theoretical basis of psychological trauma from a bio-psycho-social perspective, including PTSD and complex trauma. The course is taught by a team of academic clinicians experienced in working with trauma from the professions of counselling, psychology and psychiatry.
The incidence and impact of psychological trauma is a massive problem globally, and there is huge demand for services that can provide effective and timely treatment for individuals suffering from its symptoms. This course is suitable for anyone working with clients who have either single incident or multiple trauma histories, and aims to give a solid grounding in how to work safely and effectively with this client group.
You will study alongside other students from a wide range of professional backgrounds, and have the opportunity for further development clinically and academically by conducting research in an area that you are interested in.
A good honours degree (2:2 and above), professional training in a therapeutic discipline such as clinical or counselling psychology, psychotherapy or counselling, and membership of an appropriate professional body such as the Health Professions Council or the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy. Applicants should also have experience of working with psychological trauma. Applicants who wish to undertake the Trauma-Focused CBT module must have an appropriate qualification in CBT.
