About this module

There will be an emphasis on the continued development of theoretical learning, advanced development of clinical skills and an emphasis on independent scholarship.  Independent study will focus on both the use of research to support the development of a therapeutic style, and the development of an evidence based review of contemporary theory or a small scale research project.
