About

In collaboration with the West London Mental Health NHS Trust, this course enables you to analyse and evaluate psychotherapeutic approaches, theories and practice relating to the work of the mental health practitioner.

Is this course for me?

This innovative, multi-disciplinary masters degree has been created for mental health and other professionals who are interested in developing skills and competences in psychotherapeutic approaches with complex cases and personality disorders within generic and forensic settings.

A collaboration between West London Mental Health NHS Trust and Buckinghamshire New University, the course provides the conceptual tools, their application to clinical work, a specialised group experience and a research dissertation to equip participants to orient themselves to the complex reality of their roles in mental health organizations.

By focusing on individual, group and institutional dynamics, this training is specifically designed to explore the preconditions for maintaining boundaries, ensuring relational security and delivering coherent, effective treatment interventions. Graduates will have the equivalent to the Institute of Group Analysis Introductory Course.
