You will learn about research directed by political and social desires through research funding. Additionally, this module will equip you with the necessary skills to succeed in research and will directly help with your dissertation.
  • Adult Psychopathology - Assessment and DiagnosisStudy the aetiology of mental health problems, as well as assessment and diagnosis. We'll take an explicitly critical approach to diagnosis of mental health problems, by considering not only the biological risk factors, but giving more attention to the psychological and sociocultural risk factors.
