Intervention and Mediation Concerning Minors in Vulnerable Situation and/or Social Conflict

What does the Master consist of?


This Master’s course has a strong professional orientation and seeks to train practitioners to interact with minors in situations of vulnerability and/or social conflict and their contexts to achieve changes, promote their development and improve their living conditions using methods and models of intervention and mediation that are adequate for each situation.

The main aims of this Master’s degree programme are to train professionals: 

  • specialised in social intervention and mediation concerning minors in situations of vulnerability and/or social conflict through the use of advanced methodological techniques and tools;
  • who are socially committed and have high ethical standards;
  • are guided by the quality and innovation of their actions, as well as engaged in their continuing professional development; and
  • with an interdisciplinary and holistic approach to intervention that takes into account the many factors involved, which provide coordinated responses to the psychosocial and institutional needs created by those situations of vulnerability and social conflict in which minors are involved.

Despite the little time it takes, it is a really enriching experience where, apart from getting to know yourself and your skills and limits, you have the opportunity to do the same with minors, who are the real protagonists.

A good intervention at the childhood and adolescence stage ensures better personal well-being in the future. This is why I chose to undertake this Master´s to complement my education. As for the University, I chose the University of Deusto because of its personalised treatment and continuing support during the learning process, which I consider essential for my education.

The best thing about the Master´s degree is that it allows direct contact with minors, and that both the course content and the teaching staff enable you to put yourself in the place of minors and understand their situation, needs and problems almost perfectly. This helps you to work more efficiently with them.
Professionally, one of the lecturers gave me the opportunity to live an experience at a Minors’ Centre outside my Community and I worked in Cadiz for several months. At present, I work at the Bizgarri Association, which develops intervention programmes for minors in their family context.

The academic year is already over and the first day, when we looked at each other curiously and thrilled at starting a new academic year, is far away now. We were all excited to meet our new classmates and lecturers, and to know if all the effort we would be doing that year would be worth it. Now I can do say it’s been worth it.
Working with minors is a hard and delicate task, but it is very gratifying and you get hooked on it as soon as you enter this world. This is what happened to me some years ago and I felt the need to continue training to carry out better interventions and feel more confident as a professional, so I decided to undertake this Master´s degree.
During this year I have met real professionals, people that, day by day, have transmitted us their love for the work well done, the knowledge and experiences that they have acquired during their careers.
I have learnt to be more independent and critical, and that personal limitations can become new opportunities to intervene and become a professional with the support of a good educational team and that, although starting a new path may seem hard and difficult, it is at the very end when you realize what an enriching and beautiful experience it has been.

I managed to work as an intern at Deusto through its collaboration grants. This was both an enriching experience and a link with the University, as I collaborated in social research projects and helped to organize an international congress of social work where I met some of the authors we had studied during the BA degree. This link enabled me to start working as an intern in Bizkailab in September. This is an entity that works jointly with Deusto on social innovation, and I have participated in social researches on minors jointly with the Regional Council of Biscay.

I worked with wonderful people and had the opportunity to put my skills into practice, gain self-confidence and, above all, learn. Thanks to this experience and the passion that my colleagues showed, I have found my vocation in a field that did not interest me at first.
