By taking this course you will study the following module Forensic Psychology module plus modules from Criminology:

Investigative and Legal Processes in Forensic Psychology
This module covers a range of theoretical and applied topics regarding investigative and judicial processes. For example, psychological principles may be applied to investigative approaches to interviewing, detecting deception, bearing false witness, offender profiling, case linkage, eyewitness memory, jury behaviour and decision-making, examining the state of mind and assessment, and expert psychological testimony (ethics, code of practice, report writing and practice). By taking this approach the student develops a critical understanding of pertinent stages in the investigative process where psychology may be used to improve interviewing strategies, as in the employment of the cognitive interview to assist in the improvement of witnesses' memory recall. This course then develops upon the investigative knowledge base provided by encouraging students to identify areas within the courtroom process where psychological techniques could be utilised. Thus, students are taken on an analytical and evaluative journey of the key criminal justice processes of the investigation and presentation of evidence in cases.

The Psychoanalysis MA is the only MA in the UK taught with the support of psychoanalysts in connection with the Department of Psychoanalysis at Paris-8 University. This Department was founded by Jacques Lacan himself.

What will you study?

Freud and Lacan's teachings highlight the inseparable relationship between culture and clinical practice. The MA offers the opportunity to study the fundamental texts of Freudian and Lacanian psychoanalysis, current research in the Freudian field and the application of analytical concepts in practice. The programme begins with a foundation module on Freud's metapsychology. Other topics studied include Freud's theory of culture and the social bond, Jacques Lacan's return to Freud, and Jacques-Alain Miller's recent clinical elaborations such as ordinary psychosis. You will study four taught modules and prepare a dissertation on a topic of your choice.

London is a historical centre for psychoanalysis and annual trips to the Freud Museum and other areas of historical and current significance will be undertaken.

Assessment

Essays and dissertation.
