University of East London
International Humanitarian Psychosocial Intervension
The programme promotes awareness of psychosocial aspects within any field of humanitarian work, whether in the UK or overseas. It aims to raise awareness of the different contexts that affect psychosocial well-being and access to appropriate services. It also aims to introduce students to different types of consultation, in recognition that most of the services provided through humanitarian agencies are delivered in response to crises or emergencies, are time limited and rely on the engagement of local populations. Consultation skills include those of engagement, development of trust, facilitation, enabling and the identification of a process by which information can be accessed, shared and evaluated.
2nd Class or above undergraduate Honours degree or equivalent in any discpline. A lower level qualification together with appropriate experience or, exceptionally, substantial related experience alone may be acceptable. In the case of applicants whose 1st language is not English, then IELTS 6.5 (or equivalent) is required
Modules include: International contexts; psychosocial consultation; humanitarian contexts; wellbeing and resilience; research 1; research 2.
Assessment is based on an essay, a reflective critique of a piece of consultation or a portfolio including methods and critiques of the ways students facilitate their own and others' wellbeing and resilience. For the Research 1 module students will be required to submit a research proposal and for Research 2, a draft journal article based on the research undertaken. Each module will need to be passed at 50% or more.
