What does it train you for?

The main objective of this course is to offer students specific competences in clinical psychology and neuropsychology practices directed at individuals, families, groups, and communities who are suffering from distress or unhealthy conditions. This Master Degree program is organized in two different curricula: “Care and relationship” and “Neuropsychology”. Both of them share a strong theoretical background which is common to the activities of the first year. In the second year the activities focus on achieving professional competencies linked to the two specific areas of expertise. This Master Degree program aims to work on the effective figuring of the professional role of the clinical psychologist.
