Master's Degree in Educational and Psychological Intervention


Imagen subrayado titulo

This program covers clearly defined professional and academic needs: a need has been detected to train people in fields related to intervention, mediation and management of resources to help anyone encountering disabilities, learning difficulties or other types of problems or deficiencies during their lives, and to coordinate strategies, programs and support systems aiming to improve their quality of life.

In its current configuration, the Master's Degree aims to train professionals who are sufficiently equipped to diagnose, intervene directly and guide non-experts on how to help people with special needs and influence social structures by designing intervention programs.

Empowerment for professionals and other educational agents is a basic strategy to spread the task of helping and guiding people with some difficulties or limitations to their full development.

An appropriate, preventive and not just palliative, educational intervention is fundamental to achieve a really good quality service for school and family institutions and basically also for citizens who are the ultimate recipients of these organizations' work.
