Psychiatric Rehabilitation Techniques graduates are healthcare professionals responsible for the provision of rehabilitative and training services to individuals with psychic disabilities, as part of a therapeutic project drawn up by a multidisciplinary team. Graduates assist in evaluating the psychic disabilities and capacities of the individual, analysing their needs and evolving requirements, and identifying resources available within the family and socio- environmental sphere.

Graduates help to identify the curative, training and psychiatric rehabilitation objectives, and to draw up a targeted intervention programme to promote the recovery and development of the patient. They offer treatment directed at training and rehabilitating individuals in terms of self-care and interpersonal relations of varying degrees of complexity, as well as to permit entry into employment, where possible.

They provide primary prevention services in the community, so as to promote the development of relational networks, foster the acceptance and management of risk situations for pathologies in evidence; work with individuals’ families and social environments, so as to encourage their re-instatement into the community.

Graduates in Psychiatric Rehabilitation Techniques can practice their profession, which relates to the rehabilitation and social re-integration of patients, in public or private health facilities:

  • mental health centres;
  • day centres;
  • residential rehabilitation communities;
  • psychiatric diagnosis and treatment services;
  • legal psychiatric hospitals;
  • drug addiction services;
  • eating disorder services;
  • child neuropsychiatry services;
  • services for adolescents;
  • assisted living residences and rehabilitation services for the elderly, community centres for minors, the elderly, families etc. for the provision of preventive, educational and rehabilitative services.

Application and admission: Limited enrolment with admission test.
