    Programme Description

    This exciting and innovative multi-professional distance-learning course is designed for health and social work/care professionals and those with an interest in this dynamic area of work.

    Its aim is to challenge and extend the knowledge base, skills and attitudes of those working in, or interested in the field of children, young people and family wellbeing. It will focus in particular on a critical analysis of the evidence-base for working with children and families, and will identify interventions and strategies that are linked with positive outcomes.

    This is an internationally focused course, which invites professionals and students from the UK, EU and overseas to study in an on-line, research based environment that challenges how work with children, young people and families is conceptualised and conducted.

    For those students who wish to obtain the MSc, the dissertation will give you the opportunity to conduct a piece of investigative research that will further understanding and/or facilitate the development of a specific area of children, young people and family wellbeing.

    The course aims to develop your:

    * ability to critically evaluate contemporary evidence and issues in the promotion of child and family wellbeing
    * knowledge of theories about children's cognitive, affective, social and cultural development
    * understanding of psychosocial interventions and their effectiveness
    * understanding of the multiple factors that correlate with outcomes for children and young people
    * awareness of the political, policy and statutory paradigms within which interventions are based
    * skills in working with others in a national and international on-line community

    The course is open to UK, EU and international health and social work/care professionals and other graduates and professionals interested in studying in an on-line research-based environment.

    The course is taught by academics with a rich track record in research and publication.

    The course can be taken either as a one year full-time master´s degree, or on a module by module basis, building to the Postgraduate Certificate (three modules), a Postgraduate Diploma (six modules), or to a full Masters (nine modules including a triple dissertation module).
