The main objective of this Master's programme is to prepare and equip professionals to work in the fields of psychology, psychiatry and related disciplines with specialist knowledge of psychotherapeutic assessment and intervention with couples and families:
- In other words, students learn how to apply the approaches of the various therapeutic schools (strategic psychodynamic, structural, narrative, integrative, behavioural, Bowen) to problem-solving for behavioural and emotional difficulties in individuals, couples and families.
- They grasp the concepts of behavioural and emotional problems from systemic and relational-dynamic frameworks.
- They assess, diagnose, plan and perform supervised psychotherapeutic interventions based on strategic, structural and dynamic-relational principles, all of which are oriented to quality and continuous improvement.
The programme mainly prepares graduates for professional practice with a view to continuous development of the discipline, equipping them to practise Marriage and Family Psychotherapy while constantly contributing to the development of systematic technical and scientific knowledge and also enabling them to continue with:
1) Certification as psychotherapists through an additional course which focuses on the practical aspects.
