Low-Intensity Psychological Interventions for Children and Young People

This course offers modular professional training, providing successful graduates with all the requirements to carry out a range of discrete evidence-based interventions with children and young people (CYP). This course does not require prior learning or experience in the field of mental health and is therefore open to those with no prior knowledge in this area. This allows those who would have otherwise been excluded from this form of training to have access to a career within CYP's mental-health services. Clinical placements are provided as part of this training, allowing you access to - and experience of - working within public-sector mental-health services. On qualification, jobs may become available within these services. The course is offered in partnership between the School of Psychology at the University of Sussex and the Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, bringing together a top-rated academic institution with a world-leading research profile in applied psychology and an NHS Trust that is a Teaching Trust of Brighton and Sussex Medical School (BSMS).
