University of Warwick
Philosophy of Science and Mental Health
This is a 5-day taught module followed by an assignment and is available as a stand-alone PGA or as a module within the MA/MSc in philosophy and ethics of mental health programme; the aim is to come to a better understanding of the nature and role of science in mental health practice and research; as in previous modules, mental health has as much to say to philosophy as vice versa; the issues covered, although large in mental health, are inherent in all areas of science; the sections of the module cover the main stages of the clinical process (psychopathology, classification, diagnosis, aetiology and prognosis), research and the use of evidence.
