Designed for professionals working in health and social care roles, either in the NHS, education, social work or the voluntary sector, this new part-time programme offers you the chance to enhance your theoretical and clinical skills in the area of psychological practice for children, adolescents and families.
You will study the compulsory aspects of evidence-based, psychological interventions, with an overview of the most up-to-date theory, evidence and application, and undertake foundation training in two, of a choice of four, therapeutic approaches.
While your focus will be on the practical applications of psychological approaches, you’ll also explore the philosophical and theoretical elements of therapeutic practice and the evidence base that informs clinical decision-making.
The Postgraduate Certificate can be completed over one-two years part time. Courses are also available to be taken as stand-alone CPD for which credits will be received.
On successful completion of the programme, you may progress on to the Postgraduate Diploma or MSc in Children & Young People's Mental Health & Psychological Practice.
This qualification can be used to enhance your current experience and training, allowing you to specialise and gain access to more advanced roles. It may also lead to further study and specialisation in your chosen field.
Applicants for the course will be considered on an individual basis. Guidelines for likely acceptance onto the course are possession of an undergraduate degree or equivalent. Where an applicant's undergraduate degree does not meet the required level or is not obviously related to subjects relevant to children and young people's development and/or mental health, they may be admitted at the discretion of the Programme Director so long as they meet the relevant experience requirements. (for details see the programme website).
