Course content

The programmes provide high quality and up-to-date training in theory, practice and research in clinical and community psychology. All teaching is informed by the distinct UEL DClinPsy perspective: where psychological processes are understood in direct relation to social and cultural contexts, diversity and inequalities. The programmes provide training with the same strong emphasis on the historical and current social, political and cultural issues that affect clinical and community psychology provision.
