Develop your specialist knowledge of child and adolescent mental health, focusing on an understanding of how significant the psyche development is on mental health.
We'll enable you to comprehend various theoretical perspectives relating to psyche development and how healthy development can have an effect on mental well-being. You'll have the opportunity to explore more specific aspects of human development, including language and cognitive development, developing a deeper understanding of more complex circumstances which affect the mental health of children. We'll explore how the very early years can have an effect on child and adolescence mental wellbeing, which can help you to understand possible concepts and issues including moral issues, risk and resilience. We'll also consider an international perspective.
The module is delivered in a blended approach, with 5 fortnightly face-to-face teaching sessions with the remainder of learning online. Students will be expected to attend all face to face teaching sessions.
You'll submit a summative assessment in the form of a 3,000 word essay.
Our module will suit health care professionals working in a relevant field.
