Course overview

This Person-centred Practice Framework approach is for graduates and practitioners who wish to develop their careers in the broad field of health and social care systems. This includes an array of settings in which you support people with their mental health, for example, community based health and social care, residential care settings, criminal justice and education. You can also sign up to study single modules.

The routes in the Person-Centred Practice Framework seek to influence and enable the transformative processes of personal and professional development through engagement, facilitation and evaluation of person-centred teaching and learning approaches. It is designed to meet the professional needs of practitioners from all disciplines working in a variety of different health and care system settings. The framework is innovative and interactive, emphasising application of theory to your practice context. It will enable you to critically engage with, evaluate and synthesise the evidence and research to promote the development and enhancement of person-centred culture and practice. This develops a pro-active, transformative and reflective approach to meeting the health and social needs of individuals, families, groups and populations.
