The overall goal of the master’s program is to provide a qualified education from an international perspective in the field of interventions to children in need of additional support due to health condition, disability, poverty, or at risk for social or other reasons.
The master’s program is grounded in an ecological perspective on child development, learning, and functioning. Influences are observed at different levels, “from neurons to neighborhoods”. A critical perspective focusing on the individual, the environment, and their interrelationship, is emphasized. A bio-psycho-social model is used as a frame of reference and the connection between research and practice is stressed.
