Course content

This course is delivered by the Children and Young People’s Centre for Justice, and their multi-talented team of social work, psychology, and research professionals.

The course will provide a comprehensive and consolidated learning experience on children in conflict with the law through a developmental lens whilst also considering the implications for young people in conflict with the law as they transition to adulthood.
Drawing from a variety of approaches and disciplines including social work and social policy, psychology, health, and law you'll develop a critical understanding of the rights of children and young people in conflict with the law, how well these are being upheld and existing challenges to being fully rights respecting. You'll also develop a theoretically informed understanding of the developmental pathways of children and young people finding themselves in conflict with the law alongside practice models of assessment, formulation, and intervention.
As a fully online, part-time course, it offers you the flexibility to grow your knowledge, skills and continued professional development whilst maintaining existing professional and personal commitments.
