Course summary

Our BA Psychosocial Studies and Principles of Psychodynamic Counselling combines the burgeoning, innovative and multidisciplinary field of psychosocial studies with an exploration of the principles that underpin psychodynamic counselling. You will explore social processes and experiences, including key ideas such as love, hate, power and change, while also studying the principles that underpin the practice of psychodynamic counselling. You will also look at how individual identity, including unconscious structures and dynamics, are developed in conjunction with, and do not exist apart from, the social categories and processes that shape our experience of who we are.The programme is designed for those who want to understand the psychological and social dynamics and structures that create our social identity and to undertake a preparatory study of the practice of psychodynamic counselling, as a means of engaging directly with other people. One of the programme’s distinctive features is that it explores some of the key assumptions and principles of psychodynamic counselling, including how psychodynamic counsellors and therapists work clinically, from a psychosocial perspective.The programme has also been designed to facilitate the development of your self-awareness and emotional sensibility, alongside the acquisition of intellectual knowledge, which could help you develop your personal interest or professional aspirations in any number of areas within the caring professions. It has been designed for students who are interested in a future career in psychodynamic counselling or psychotherapy, or those who wish to apply the principles and methods of psychodynamic counselling to their work or their lives.**HIGHLIGHTS**- Birkbeck has over 40 years' experience of teaching psychodynamic counselling and practice.- Staff within our innovative Department of Psychosocial Studies have a keen interest in the development of new and innovative psychosocial methods, as well as forging new theoretical trajectories across a range of critical fields of enquiry.- The Department is genuinely interdisciplinary, with academics coming from backgrounds in anthropology, cultural and postcolonial studies, education studies, gender and sexuality studies, literary studies, critical psychology, psychoanalytic studies and sociology.- In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF), Sociology at Birkbeck was ranked 13th in the UK.
