OPEN EVENING: Wednesday 18th January 2012 (please email email@example.com to book a place) This new, unique, MSc aims to encourage an integrated understanding of child development and a range of childhood disorders, and to give students an opportunity to apply this understanding in a clinical setting, through a placement in the second year within a Child and Adolescent Mental Health clinic. What and how will I learn? The programme draws together theory, research and therapeutic thinking from a range of perspectives, including clinical and cognitive psychology, psychoanalysis and neuroscience. In a workshop setting, students develop competencies in engagement, assessment and evaluation, and practical skills necessary for therapeutic work with children and families. These are then put into practice during the clinical placement. Degree Structure This two year MSc has a total value of 300 credits. Each year students complete courses to the value of 150 credits. Year one: taught courses (150 credits). Year two: clinical skills courses (35 credits), a clinical practice in context course (15 credits) and the research dissertation (100 credits). A Postgraduate Diploma (120 credits, full-time one year) is offered. Core modules CORE COURSES INCLUDE: Multiple Perspectives on Child Development Development Psychopathology Research Methods II: Introduction to Statistical Analysis Evaluating Clinical Interventions Foundations of Psychoanalytic Thought Observation 1: Parent Infant Clinical Practice in Context Options All courses are compulsory.

The programme is based at the Anna Freud Centre in London, a world-renowned centre for research, training and clinical practice in the field of child mental health.http:www.annafreud.orgindex.php Distinctive features include an overview of child development and developmental psychopathology including a focus on key childhood disorders (e.g. autism, ADHD, psychosis and conduct disorder) taught by leading academics and clinicians, and practical training in conducting research in clinical settings, drawing on the best aspects of both 'evidence based practice' and 'practice based evidence'. You will also gain exposure to clinical work within NHS and voluntary sector organisations involving children, adolescents and families, under the supervision of an experienced clinician. Your career Although this is a new programme we expect that graduates will be ideally placed to apply for doctoral-level clinical trainings, such as Clinical Psychology or Child Psychotherapy, or to work as primary mental health workers specialising in work with children and families. Completing this MSc does not currently result in an accredited clinical qualification as a therapist. However it will help you develop several core clinical competencies and provide direct supervised experience of work in a child and adolescent mental health service, placing you in a very strong position to proceed to a full clinical training. Entry requirements Normally a minimum of an upper second-class Bachelor's degree from a UK university in Psychology, or in another relevant social, clinical or life science dis
