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. It is also suitable for professionals from related fields (mental health, correctional officers, etc.) who wish to acquire practical knowledge applicable to their work, even if they do not work full-time in the field of drugs or addictions. This course is not suitable for recent graduates.

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