This master's degree includes a set of curricular units that aim to develop skills that allow a better approach and response to the socio-emotional needs of students, with special attention to those who are at risk, namely those from ethnic, linguistic and migrant communities, in a situation of greater socioeconomic disadvantage, and even students with learning difficulties and/or specific educational health needs.
