Psychology is a field of knowledge that applies to many contexts in both professional and working life.

Having experience in Psychology can help us understand many of the things that surround us: consumer behavior, the keys to well-being, the best strategies for educating children…

In this article we will see several examples of the best training in Psychology in Barcelona , along with an explanation of the recommendations and criteria to be taken into account when choosing a learning program in this field of science.

The best training in Psychology in Barcelona: where to look?

When looking for training programs related to the field of psychology, these are the characteristics that we should look at to know if each of the offers meets the expected quality standards.

1. They are learning programs organized by experts

In Psychology, practical experience is extremely important, and for this reason it is essential that the teaching staff have complete training in this field and that they dedicate themselves to the subjects dealt with by Psychology on a daily basis.

2. They offer personalized treatment, either in person or online

Training in Psychology should always offer the possibility of resolving doubts about the contents to where to look for additional information on the topics covered.

3. They combine theory with practice

In order to have a wide vision about the contents you learn about, you have to know how reality is through practice, and also how all this is explained through theory.

4. Provide facilities for further learning

No postgraduate course, master’s degree or course provides all the knowledge available about a subject. That is why these learning programmes must provide the necessary tools to know where to continue to find sources through which it is possible to study more about the subject being taught.

5. They place us in real contexts

Not only is it necessary to understand the type of problems that psychology faces; they must also provide information on the type of incidents that occur in real contexts.

For example, knowing what intervention in company teams consists of is useless if we do not also talk about the danger that the simple figure of the psychologist can provoke hostility and suspicions in the workers. Or if we do not know how the first contact should be made, or the return of information from the initial interviews through a report.

6. Report on the limits of the methodology used

As important as knowing what can be done in psychology is to be aware of the limitations we have when drawing conclusions from what has been studied or when intervening in patients or groups.

That is why training in quality psychology must include considerations of limits, those conclusions that cannot be taken for granted.

7. They use precise terminology

The best training in psychology should always work with well-defined terms that are used consistently.

Giving up this to become more “accessible” using words of popular and everyday use makes the quality of learning deteriorate, because it will be much more difficult to correctly understand what is being explained.

Precisely, the training courses and workshops offer the opportunity to go beyond popular knowledge and what we know through common sense and to go deeper into subjects taking into account their complexity, deepening them as far as time allows.

8. They provide the possibility of continuing collaboration

Another advantage of training courses is that they allow us to meet people with common interests and levels of knowledge that can be complemented with our own.

Therefore, part of their added value is that they give the opportunity to network and to launch collaborations made possible by making contact in class, either with other students or with teachers.

9. They offer specific techniques

It is necessary to know the specificities of the methods and techniques used in psychology for each case, depending on the problem to be treated.

It is one thing to give ambiguous orientations about the role of the psychologist and another to train in procedures . For example, the Barcelona-based psychology centre PsicoTools offers courses that focus primarily on thematic areas delimited by procedures and techniques.

This psychology centre attaches great importance to Mindfulness techniques, which are increasingly used in therapeutic, educational and work contexts. Thus, the team of professionals of Psicotools carries out Mindfulness courses and workshops designed according to specific objectives: to regulate stress in the company, to encourage the modulation of emotions in children, etc.
