Description 

The Clinical and Community Psychology deals with the relations of the individual with the community and society in general. The professional community psychologists seek to understand the quality of life of individuals, communities and societies, aiming at improving the quality of life through research and action.

The Community Psychology uses diverse theories outside and within the science of Psychology, in order to analyze critical issues related to communities, the relations between them and the behaviors of the individuals towards them. It is a combination of science, theory and clinical knowledge aiming at the understanding, prediction and relief of psychological stress and pychological problems and the promotion of health and individual development. At the core of its practice we find psychological assessment and psychotherapy, although clinical psychologists engage as well in research, education and counselling.

The MSc Clinical and Community Psychology aims at providing the theoretical and technical knowledge and experience from the basic clinical and community applications of Psychology science. It combines theory with clinical practice and research. It provides high quality, up to date theoretical training, practice and research in Clinical and Community Psychology, and education centred on the historical, social, political and cultural factors affecting the application of the science.
