You will learn theories of psychopathology from childhood to adulthood, and clinical applications of psychology in health and wellbeing. The course offers skills training in counselling and cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), and develops your awareness of professional issues relevant to clinical practitioners.
You will gain in-depth knowledge of theories of psychopathology across the lifespan, and will study the biopsychosocial aspects of health and illness.
