At the end of the module students are able to do the following at the level of an intermediate Psychology Designer: apply the activities of the analysis and synthesis phase of the ASCE model to a new psychological problem as part of the project, with the objective of developing an intervention plan:
  • analyse a psychological problem and the relevant risk group, target group, environment and determinants effectively and to articulate this analysis
  • develop specific intervention, behavioural, and change objectives for the psychological intervention
  • select effective methodologies and strategies appropriate for the analysis report and the target group and to articulate these choices
  •  to integrate the selected methodologies and strategies into an innovative intervention programme and to justify the structure of the psychological intervention.

The 'Design and Research' study unit is part of the module Social Behaviour (202000325) and students complete the project in this study unit. Students design an intervention plan for a topical psychological problem in respect of social behaviour. This level builds on the elementary design level of module 1. In the module 2 project, students practise the Analysis and Synthesis phase of the ASCE model in particular. On one hand, students learn to gather and process information about the scale/seriousness of the problem and the determinants that underpin the problem. On the other hand, students explore change strategies and methodologies that dovetail with the objectives they formulated (behavioural and change objectives). Students apply some of the statistical (descriptive and/or evaluative) techniques and theories of Social (Developmental) Psychology they have learned. The end result of the project is an intervention plan.
