This aim of this degree programme is to specifically teach students to become professionals who are experts in the resolution of family conflict, mediators and family coaches. The purpose of this is to provide knowledge, tools and specific competences so they can undertake their allocated tasks.
According to statistics from the Institute of Family Policies, conflict in broken families is progressively increasing, as is the number of divorces.
The lack of professionals specialised in this area who can help to resolve conflicts in crisis situations of all kinds and who can also mediate in irreversible situations of family breakdown is notorious. However it is necessary to carry out positive mediation in an attempt to prevent any type of conflict and to create tools for communication and to help resolve future conflict.
We have lecturers and professors with both teaching and research experience, and some staff members from the professional field of mediation.
