Course summary

This programme, developed in partnership with the NHS, combines academic teaching with clinical practice training in applied psychology for children and young people.

It allows you to develop knowledge and competence in the delivery of evidence-based psychological interventions for this group, and skills and competencies for the delivery of Tier two psychological assessments and interventions in services for children, young people and their families.

You will be employed in a one-year clinical placement in the Scottish NHS Child & Adolescent Mental Health Service, gaining valuable experience applying psychological theory to practice, under the supervision of a qualified clinical psychologist.

Alongside essential elements for applied psychologists in health (e.g. assessment and formulation, and evaluation) and child and adolescent mental health professionals (e.g. safeguarding children, child and adolescent development and health promotion), there is a particular focus on psychological interventions, early years and early intervention. There is also a strong emphasis on parenting and supporting parents through evidence-based models of parent-focused intervention.

Career opportunities

This programme will qualify you to apply for Clinical Associate in Applied Psychology (Children and Young People) posts, or equivalent, in a number of settings, both within the NHS and in other organisations, such as the voluntary sector.

You will also gain highly transferable skills, such as communication and project management.
