About

This ground-breaking International Humanitarian Psychosocial Intervention course from University of East London offers online training for people working in humanitarian organisations, wherever they are in the world. 

Overview

The distance learning International Humanitarian Psychosocial Intervention course from University of East London is aimed at people who are currently, or hope to be, engaged in humanitarian work in any country and who want the skills and knowledge to offer psychosocial support.

This involves helping people to maintain their positive psychological development in the face of challenges – often traumatic – being posed by their social environment.

Once you have completed this course you will be able to support others within your organisation, whether or not you are part of an established human resources department.

As well as ‘helping the helpers’, you will be equipped to offer direct psychosocial guidance to people who have suffered, or who continue to suffer, from the effects of a natural or man-made catastrophe such as famine, flood, epidemic or war.

Your future career

This course offers very specific, applied training. And, as the UK’s only MSc in the subject, it will give you the opportunity to go on and study for a PhD.

We also offer intermediate awards The PG Diploma requires you to pass the two conceptual core modules, plus two optional modules.

The PG Certificate requires a pass in the two conceptual core modules, and the University Certificate asks for a pass in any module other than those relating to research methods and the dissertation.

On completion of the course, you may go on to build or further a career in a humanitarian aid agency in the UK or overseas, or within a public health or social services setting with a psychosocial focus.

The course takes into account the time limitations and practical difficulties the field of psychosocial support can entail. It will cover the changing demands of different phases of aid offered – relief, transition, development and consolidation.
