This course explores the psychological basis of generic and counselling strategies, equips students to assess psychological models of counselling approaches, and provides for a supervised professionally-oriented empirical research dissertation in the final (MSc) year; these professional aims are underpinned by a detailed study of the psychology of addiction embracing the main theories of the development of addictive behaviours, the principal approaches to counselling and treatment of addictive disorders, and training in research in the field of addictions.
Years 1 and 2: Theoretical foundations of addiction and counselling psychology; therapeutic counselling theory and practice; professional practice in addiction counselling; advanced addiction psychology; advanced theory and practice in therapeutic counselling; research methods in professional practice. Year 3: Research project in addiction psychology/therapy (Master's only).
Applicants normally have a professional, employment or voluntary work interest in addiction but won't necessarily be graduates; however, graduates with an interest in the psychology of addiction and seeking a career in counselling, are particularly interested in this programme; some work experience in health, community and social services settings is normally required.
