Module description

About this module

In studying this module you will learn about how all people can experience a range of different forms and degrees of emotional and psychological distress and disorder. There is an even wider range of historically, politically, socially, and culturally informed ways of making sense of this experience. 

You will study a range of the issues and debates in how we have, and now do, diagnose and then treat people.  In addition, the module will also enable you to critically reflect on your work role and your workplace and on how you and your colleagues can work with people who experience distress and disorder in a facilitating way.
