This MSc prepares you for a fulfilling and rewarding career in child and adolescent mental health. You will learn to provide collaborative and compassionate care and support for children and adolescents promoting their mental health, identifying needs and recognising which therapeutic interventions are appropriate and why. You will gain the skills, knowledge and awareness of child and adolescent psychological development, early identification, managing risk and resilience, assessment and evidence-based psychosocial interventions and contemporary issues in child and adolescent mental health. The course uses a sound evidence-base to prepare you to participate in a specialist workforce, where the development of ethical and culturally-sensitive practice and the placement of the child, young person and their carer are at the centre of decision-making and service re-design. You will enhance your ability to critically evaluate and reflect on your work or the work of others who care for individuals and families where there are significant concerns and vulnerability.
