The programme offers the core elements of teaching and learning on the theoretical, conceptual and evidence bases for mental health and well-being promotion whilst fostering a critical and reflective approach to the application of these. 10) Educational aims of programme: The programme will enable graduates and professionals coming from different environments (clinical, educational, social services, public health, policy making, non-governmental organizations, international cooperation, etc.) to: 1

Develop a critical awareness of how different factors influence how children grow up in different contexts. Develop a cultural sensitised perspective on systems of care and psychological interventions. In its core elements it will include both conceptual and applied courses.

Courses within the MSc programme have been and will also be offered separately as Continuing Professional Development modules for graduate students and practitioners who are already developing a professional task in related fields. In contrast with the other programmes offered by the Clinical Psychology Section, it is to be delivered fully online. The rationale of doing so is that, while applied psychology postgraduate courses may need more face to face interaction, applied developmental models and mental health and well-being promotion is a field which needs more theoretical input and critical thinking about public mental health, and thus perfectly suits the online medium. 11) Programme Outcomes (a) Knowledge and understanding The programme equips students with advanced knowledge and understanding of: Theories of developmental well-being/ill-being and its application to psychological practice in the field of child and adolescent mental health Debates about research and the evidence base underpinning current 3
