    Internships (36 ECTS) give students the chance for training as they carry out tasks and duties, thus developing professional competences (skills, attitudes and aptitudes). Practical work will be carried out both in the field of General Health Psychology and Relational/Systemic Psychotherapy.

    All clinical tutors are accredited family therapists with experience in different relational issues (trauma, bereavement, inter-parental conflict, domestic violence, etc.).

    Clinical internships in Phase 1 and Phase 2 will be held in two different centres:

    Clinical internships in Phase 3 clinical placements are held in accredited external centres under the supervision of accredited professionals. To see the type of centres you can look at those linked to:
