Master in Psychology, Professional focus, Clinical Psychology and Psychopathology
The “Master in Clinical Psychology and Psychopathology”, Professional focus, prepares students for the singularity and complexity of clinical encounters, for the ethical demands and the professional rigour that these imply, and for a multidisciplinary approach to problems of mental health and well-being.
To this end, the programme is particularly attentive to the development of personal involvement and relational skills of future clinical psychologists.
The Master seeks to integrate three complementary models for understanding human reality: the psychoanalytical approach, the systemic approach and the cognitive behavioural approach.
