This exciting programme, the first in the UK, intends to develop the knowledge and skills of professionals already working in this area, or who have a specific interest in the field of mental health and the care of people with intellectual disabilities who have offended, or may be at risk of offending.
By choosing to study at Coventry you will get the opportunity to:
- Enhance the quality and standard of treatment and care delivered to a vulnerable sector of the population,
- influence the ‘offender pathway’ within you own field of practice,
- develop into an enquiring and reflective worker,
- expand the professional boundaries of your work/practice as a result of increased theoretical knowledge and inter-professional thinking,
- adopt a pro-active approach to continuing professional development,
- respond to the changing demands of health and social care practice.
