Through theoretical seminars this course will examine both the evidence base and efficacy of contemporary psycho-therapeutic approaches. These include systemic, parenting, psychodynamic, cognitive and pharmacological modalities.
The theoretical seminars will be supported by critical analysis and evaluation of relevant reading within the journal group. A service-user perspective influences this course.
The importance of working collaboratively with difference, vulnerability and complex need will also be explored, and the professional relationship, its boundaries and limitations are also central to these seminars.
