The importance of psychology in the workplace has grown in recent years and many professionals have received some instruction in the discipline as part of their first degrees and/or professional qualifications. If you are working in health, education or social or community work then you will be using elements of psychology every day. If you are involved with recruiting, training and managing people at work then a knowledge of psychology can make life a lot easier. The interpersonal skills required in a counselling role may come naturally to many of us but they can also be taught and refined in the classroom and laboratory. This course sets out to build upon your basic psychological knowledge and to give you advanced tuition in many key areas of applied psychology. Our aims are to provide an intellectually demanding programme of studies and to develop useful skills which may be applicable in many situations at work.
