This module introduces you to the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) programme, implemented across England from 2008. The programme sought to address a significant problem in the provision of psychological therapies in England but is a challenge experienced in many parts of the world. That is, limited access to ‘evidence-based psychological therapies’ for the treatment of ‘high-prevalence’ or ‘common’ mental health problems, often resulting in very long waiting times and difficulties concerning the acceptability of treatments being offered, or in meeting the needs of people with some feature of diversity.

The module is also designed to provide you with knowledge concerning the presentation of common mental health difficulties and equip you with a theoretical understanding of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). Further, the module provides you with a critical appreciation as to how the organisation of mental health service delivery, development of a new mental health workforce and implementation of low-intensity CBT is being used to address problems regarding the availability of evidence-based psychological therapies and excessive waiting times....

For much of the 19th and 20th century, Britain was the world’s superpower, and its imperial connections not only left deep traces in America, Africa and Asia but also in Britain itself. Thus to understand modern British history it is necessary to see it in a global perspective: not only were British politics and economics influenced by imperial considerations but also most of its wars were global conflicts. Furthermore, British culture – food, fashion and architecture – was, and still is, shaped by its imperial legacy. By combining political, social and military history, this module introduces you to the key developments, ideas, events and people that shaped modern British history.

Which promises are legally binding, and which are not? What happens if you break a promise? In what circumstances can you escape from your promise? These are the fundamental questions of contract law. And contract law is important because of the extent to which it governs our lives: when we are shopping in the supermarket, or renting a house, or employed at work, or booking a holiday - most of our transactions, whether routine or exceptional, are contractual. This module will provide an introduction to the major principles of English contract law.

This course focuses on the growth and management of global enterprises from the emergence of the modern multinational to the present day. In studying the dynamics of international business we take these enterprises (commonly referred to as MNEs, MNCs or TNCs) as our key actors, and use an interdisciplinary approach to assess the challenges associated with developing strategies and managing operations across national boundaries. We explore, therefore, the interplay between the multinational enterprise, the countries in which it does business, and the competitive environment in which it operates. This approach will ensure that global enterprise is framed in a wide political, social, historical and economic context.... [-]
