On successful completion of the course, the student will:
have advanced knowledge of human diversity
have advanced knowledge of inclusive and excluding psychosocial conditions in society
have advanced knowledge of recognition and offence in relation to psychosocial problems
The course gives a broad overview of various perspectives on how recognition and infringement affect psychosocial problems in a number of areas, such as mental health, substance abuse, behavior, difficult emotional experiences, function, development of children and adolescents, different coping strategies, family, sexuality etc. Furthermore, the course will provide knowledge about human diversity and elucidate how inclusive processes in society are important for psychosocial health. Work within psychosocial health is also about being able to point out and seek to change conditions in society that create ill-health and contribute to social exclusion and the emotional and cognitive factors underlying this. This is therefore a central aspect in the course.
