University Master's in Legal, Forensic and Criminological Psychopathology – Official

Currently, there is a growing educational need in the area of Legal, Forensic and Criminological Psychopathology among experts related to Mental Health. Everyone who either works in the field of legal medicine or must intervene, as specialists, in the forensic field and deal with different psycho-pathological problems requires distinctive theoretical and practical understanding of this type of material. The advantage of greater strengthening and specialisation in terms of addressing the existing gaps in education, in such a way that those who intervene function with assumed control in the legal-juridical level in the forensic area can be apparent. With this goal in mind, the notion is to complement the specific technical, scientific or scholastic specialisations of the various experts, in a way that they comprehend the problems that they must intervene from a comprehensive perspective.
