Course summary

This MA Understanding Domestic Violence and Sexual Abuse – distance learning provision is unique and represents the first distance learning psychologically informed programme of its kind.

It is particularly suitable for people wishing to increase their understanding of the interplay between mental distress, domestic violence and sexual abuse. The programme is available as a distance learning programme, and includes innovative, interactive, experiential and reflective online teaching. Students will learn how to become reflective and inclusive through both theoretical and experiential activities.

Your learning will be underpinned by a unique synthesis of psychodynamic, systemic, cognitive behavioural and social theories to examine the impact of being abusive and/or of being abused. The programme focuses on looking at practice and research from these theoretical perspectives and will consider abusiveness and its impact in different cultural and social contexts from childhood to older age.

Careers

It is expected that a number of professionals will use either the course credit or the degree to supplement their CPD portfolios, which are a requirement for the majority of these professionals.

For workers with extensive experience, this programme (or its constituent courses) will provide a sound basis in theoretical knowledge and current research which will help them develop their current work and increase their potential for further advancement in the field.

The UK has developed recognised forms of intervention in this field that have an international application and relevance. Issues regarding domestic violence and sexual abuse have an international public health and human rights dimension, which makes the programme internationally relevant.
