The module aims to equip mental health practitioners with an advanced understanding and critical analysis of the theoretical background and research evidence as well as the clinical skills to undertake family intervention for psychosis in practice.
The module requires practitioners to bring in clinical material (whilst maintaining confidentiality) from their practice setting in order to explore and integrate concepts from the module to their clinical work. In addition, role-play will be used as a resource to support teaching and learning.
The programme encourages reflective practice and responsibility for one's own professional development and the dissemination of appropriate knowledge and skills to others. The learning outcomes are achieved through a variety of both classroom and practice based learning methods.
This module is also available as an undergraduate (level 6) award.
