Summary

Psychosocial interventions relate to an individual's psychological development and how this development interacts with a social environment. Generally psychosocial interventions cover psychological interventions (for example classified into behavioural, cognitive, humanistic, motivational etc) and social approaches (for example focusing the work on families or wider social networks such a local communities). Students on this course, therefore, are exposed to the underlying principles and frameworks of interventions such as cognitive behavioural therapy; family intervention skills; motivational enhancement skills; positive psychology (skills and interventions).

Evidence also suggests that these interventions can be successfully utilised with other long-term conditions such as diabetes, coronary heart disease and epilepsy.

This unique programme forms a broader subject base than other postgraduate programmes in this field, encapsulating psychosocial interventions with all forms of mental health and the application of interventions to physical health issues.

We will provide you with the skills to critically understand the principle concepts, theories and effectiveness of psychosocial interventions within various organisations.

You will learn about various clinical approaches, allowing problem-solving and critical reflection in order to develop creative solutions when dealing with complex clinical and social issues.
