Course details

- Description

Affective disorders are also known as mood disorders and the main types include depression, bipolar disorder and anxiety disorder.

This course will adopt a multidisciplinary approach by capitalising on the most recent findings from a range of clinical and non-clinical disciplines, such as psychiatry, psychology, genetics, neuroscience, epidemiology and biostatistics. You will be trained in the key scientific and methodological aspects of affective disorders, their care and related research. You will also gain transferable skills through a variety of tutorials and exercises.

- Contact time -

The expectation is that students should be available to attend throughout the working week.

- Course purpose

The purpose of our course is to meet the growing need for a graduate training programme that focuses exclusively on affective disorders. Affective Disorders course is accessible to a wide audience, but would be of particular interest to psychiatrists, GPs, psychologists, related medical professionals and pharmaceutical scientists. It is especially suitable for health professionals who wish to refocus their career and specialise in Affective Disorders. It is equally suitable for health professionals who already work in a relevant field and wish to gain recognition for their expertise. Graduates who wish to pursue clinical psychology training, or research on the affective disorders may also be interested.
