Objectives and competences

This short specialization course consists of a set of theoretical-practical seminars selected from among those offered to students in the second year of the master's in Drug Addiction. It is aimed at professionals with extensive experience in drug addiction who can compensate for the lack of basic training they will not have received by not having participated in the first year of the master's programme. Also professionals working in related fields (mental health, prisons...) who want practical, applicable knowledge, but not full dedication to drugs or addictions. Not suitable for recent graduates

This postgraduate course forms part of the master's degree or postgraduate degree
