MSc International Humanitarian Psychosocial Consultation by distance learning

Course Description

The aim of this MSc is to promote awareness of psychosocial aspects within any field of humanitarian work, whether in the UK or overseas. The programme aims to raise awareness of the different contexts that affect psychosocial well-being and access to appropriate services. The programme also aims to introduce students to different types of consultation, in recognition that most of the services provided through humanitarian agencies are delivered in response to crises or emergencies, are time limited and rely on the engagement of local populations. Consultation skills include those of engagement, development of trust, facilitation, enabling and the identification of a process by which information can be accessed, shared and evaluated.

The focus of psychosocial consultation for this programme is the collaboration with different groups to facilitate understanding of different psychosocial needs. Groups include beneficiaries; aid workers; volunteers; staff; managers; partner organisations and stakeholders, all of whom require safety, security and good psychosocial support in order to facilitate the successful completion and evaluation of projects in the UK and overseas.

The programme is understood to be the first of its kind, focusing on psychosocial issues within international humanitarian contexts (e.g. personal communication from Director of HR Services, People in Aid).
