Advanced Mental Health Practice (Part-time) - Máster en Práctica Avanzada en Salud Mental
The course has been designed to allow you to focus on your own specialist area of practice with children and families, but also to have a positive impact on service development from a practice perspective. The units studied have been selected to develop practitioners who can use independent critical judgment to take a leading role in systematically developing their own practice and that of others.
The course will meet the needs of experienced social workers already practising at a senior level who wish to progress to an advanced level and meet the expectations to practice in complex situations, exercising high quality professional judgements as outlined in the new Professional Capabilities Framework (PCF). This course retains the emphasis on advanced practice with children and families rather than career progression which goes down a management pathway.
Applicants will normally hold a social work qualification recognised by the Health and Care Professions Council or a qualification in an allied profession. You must hold at least a Diploma level qualification, such as a Diploma in Higher Education (DipHE) or equivalent.
