Course content

Increasingly on the agenda since national policy developments such as ‘Personality Disorder: No Longer a Diagnosis of Exclusion’ (DoH, 2003), the impetus to acknowledge personality disorder as a mainstream mental health activity continues with NICE guidelines in 2009. Such guidance outlines the development of services for individuals with personality disorder in all settings, including primary and secondary care. It recognises the importance of increasing specialist knowledge and staff development. The MSc Personality Disorder by Research is an innovative course, which provides students with an opportunity not only to enhance their skills and understanding of research issues, but also engage in research focusing specifically on personality disorder. The course recognises the centrality of linking practice to research as a major tenant of moving the agenda forward in personality disorder.
