Aims and Learning Outcomes

The aim is to come to a better understanding of the nature and role of science in mental health practice and research.

As in previous modules, mental health will have as much to say to philosophy as vice versa.

The issues covered, although writ large in mental health, are inherent in all areas of science.

The sections of the module cover the main stages of the clinical process (psychopathology, classification, diagnosis, aetiology and prognosis), research and the use of evidence.
