- Course format and assessment -
The course is delivered through lectures, small group seminars, skills development groups, case presentations and personal and professional development groups. This course includes a significant amount of live supervised clinical practice which enables students to develop their psychotherapy skills to a high level and with a range of clients. Students on the PT MSc will need to be working in a context that allows them to complete 100 clinical hours of family and couple therapy in each year of the course.
Study groups are small and there is a high level of personal attention. Lectures and discussions form the core teaching for each module. They cover the main topics and key themes in the curriculum of each module, and ideas are developed further in small group work, case analyses and student presentations. You are expected to supplement class work and lecture notes with further reading. Students find it helpful to do some preparatory reading each week.
