This module is aimed at students who have professional contact with children, young people and their families and are interested in developing their knowledge and understanding of therapeutic approaches to their psychological care.
Through theoretical seminars this module will examine both the evidence base and efficacy of contemporary psycho-therapeutic approaches. These will include systemic, parenting, psychodynamic, cognitive and pharmalogical modalities.
These approaches will be further examined within reflective practice where an emphasis on working safely and collaboratively with difference, vulnerability and complex need will be explored.
The importance of the professional relationship, its boundaries and limitations will be central to these seminars. Both the theoretical and reflective practice seminars will be supported by critical analysis and evaluation of relevant reading within the journal group. A service user perspective will influence this module.
