Psychology with Clinical Psychology (with Foundation Year) at Teesside University, Middlesbrough - UCAS

Course summary

This course includes a foundation year - ideal if you need additional preparation or if you don't have sufficient grades to join Year 1 of a degree. Course overview: Clinical psychology is the study of the psychology of mental and physical health problems, which might include anxiety, depression, psychosis and addictions. You study core psychology modules, alongside specific clinical psychology related modules to develop a deeper understanding of the more challenging sides of human experience, from working with mental health difficulties, dementia and suicide, to the impact of trauma and bullying. You explore how a person’s history can impact on their present day, and also how to help alleviate their distress. You develop relevant clinical skills relevant to careers in sectors including education, housing, mental health services, housing, charities, or to further study on our Doctorate courses. Clinical skills are developed by assessment (including administering tests and interviewing patients), how to make sense of a patient’s story, to resolve some of their clinical issues and how to develop an evidence-based treatment plan. You matter – and will be part of a community which encourages you to find your voice to make a valued and meaningful contribution, with professional and personal supervision, and support specific to your needs. Top reasons to study this course 1. Focus on a personal interest or specialism for your research project such as eating disorders, addictions, homelessness and young people’s mental health. 2. You will be taught by qualified practitioner psychologists with professional experience of working with people with mental health difficulties 3. You learn how to work with people across the lifespan, including adults, children, older adults and people with learning disabilities 4. Opportunities for work experience or a work-related learning project, including Volun-tees.
