University of Essex
Our course combines expertise from both our Centre for Psychoanalytic Studies and the Tavistock Centre to bring an innovative twin-site Masters (2 modules are taught at the Tavistock Centre in London and 2 modules at our Centre for Psychoanalytic Studies in Colchester) in the study of refugee care. The central focus is to introduce a therapeutic dimension and a psychosocial perspective to working with this group of people and is the only postgraduate course to offer a combination of modules with this emphasis, making a clear distinction between offering psychotherapy and being therapeutic in working with refugees. There is a good mix of practical and experiential elements, such as placements and institutional observations, to support a sound theoretical framework to understand the complexities of the refugee experience, such as: Family and societal factors; interactions with various services; institutions and organisations; and the inter-personal dynamics involved between refugees and their workers.
Upper 2nd Class Honours degree, or equivalent, in relevant subject; IELTS 6.5.
Modules include: Context of the refugee experience; placement; psychoanalysis of groups and organisations; psychosocial perspectives on human rights; dissertation; therapeutic care for refugees.
Assessment methods include written coursework, end-of-term tests, practical and laboratory work (where appropriate) and end-of-year exams.
Research councils and some University of Essex studentships available.
