Master in Psychology of Health and Wellbeing - Máster en Psicología de la Salud y Bienestar
Full-time: 13 months / Part-time: 26 months
The MSc mental health and clinical psychology offers the opportunity to graduate with a Masters degree oriented towards particular interests in the field of mental health and clinical psychology, with a distinctive emphasis on the experiences of people who live with distress. A particular focus will be on psychosocial approaches to the study and ´treatment´ of mental distress, in both clinical and community settings. This will involve exploring the social and cultural context from which mental distress occurs, and the responses of those who have experienced distress first hand. Experts by experience (sometimes referred to as service users) will be heavily involved in the delivery of the course, and the design of the overall course structure. Jacqui Dillon (chair of the Hearing Voices Network) will be a consultant throughout the design and implementation of this unique programme.
