Summary

This MSc in Children's Psychological Disorders will equip you with a thorough theoretical understanding of the psychological factors that cause and maintain emotional and behavioural problems in children.

Taught by leading international experts, you will discover and research how both mental health difficulties and neurodevelopmental conditions, which include anxiety, depression, ADHD, autism and conduct disorder, emerge in childhood. You will gain an in-depth knowledge of how these conditions can be best assessed; enabling you to subsequently inform intervention and advise the best course of treatment.

Located at our dedicated Centre for Human Development Science (CUCHDS), this programme will also equip you with the skills, knowledge and experience to pursue a rewarding career in child neuro – development, clinical child psychology or educational psychology.

You will undergo a range of professional training in emotional, cognitive and neurodevelopmental assessments for children, classification systems of childhood disorders and in observational coding of child behaviour and parent-child interaction.

Research training also forms a key focus of this programme, and it is designed to strengthen your credentials for entry to a PhD in developmental psychopathology, or to doctoral training programmes in Clinical or Educational Psychology.

In addition to providing training in basic research, the course aims to integrate research perspectives from clinical and educational psychology.
