Course Description:
The module aims to provide you with a thorough grounding in BioPsychoSocial Models of Women’s mental health. This model will join up important work across each area in an effort to gain a holistic understanding of women’s mental health. This module will familiarise you with cutting edge research in the area, and will draw on the work of members from the Mood Disorders Centre, the Medical School, and where appropriate the Humanities. In taking this module, you will become familiar with not only the theory, but also the application of current empirically supported treatments for women’s mental health (including CBT, Interpersonal Psychotherapy, and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy), and you will gain an awareness of current issues and controversies surrounding NICE guidelines and how the National Health Service delivers these interventions. Teaching methods will include lectures, but also group, pair and individual exercises.

Interdisciplinary course with focus on women's studies but no exact equivalent at ISU. OK to use for international perspectives.
