Objectives and competences

This master's degree began in the 1991-1992 academic year. It is aimed at undergraduates/graduates in psychology and/or medicine (or students who have up to 10% of credits pending), who wish to deepen the psychoanalytical model of development and the psychopathological understanding of its alterations, as well as begin to be introduced into clinical practice. We consider that at the end of the course the student will have acquired the basic knowledge to approach the clinic in childhood and adolescence which will allow them to start their professional activity, as well as to access training that deepens this field.
