Applying scientific knowledge in clinical practice
Which factors contribute to the development of children and adolescents? How and why do emotional, behavioural or social problems emerge? How can such problems be prevented or treated effectively? The master's programme Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology focuses on both the acquisition of scientific knowledge and its application in professional practice.
The internship in the broad field of a clinical child and adolescent psychology is therefore an important part of our programme. In the courses, you will gain specialised, state of the art scientific knowledge and learn about its applications:
- You will learn about assessment for intervention and evidence-based interventions to support children, parents and/or teachers.
- You will also be introduced to cognitive behavioural therapy and you will learn how to design a treatment plan using cognitive behavioural therapy techniques.
- You will learn to apply critical scientific thinking to take position on relevant issues in the field of clinical child and adolescent psychology.
