Unlike most other postgraduate courses in the field, this course has an emphasis on gaining practical skills and experience. In particular the course is designed to bridge an existing gap in practice skills development, and students will gain knowledge, skills and experience for working within the most challenging settings.
The programme will allow opportunities for practitioners to develop confidence in their knowledge and understanding and direct intervention skills and this will be assessed by a range of methods including:
- videotaped role play
- peer review and extended case study work
Throughout the programme students will be encouraged to critically analyse and reflect on current practice.
