  • Community organization: Centre de Noves Oportunitats.
  • Summary: This master's thesis, undertaken during the academic year 2019/2020, arose out of the URV's 5th Social Projects Market. The student joined the Centre de Noves Oportunitats (Centre for New Opportunities) with the aim of developing an emotional management programme for young people at risk of social exclusion (a demand of the centre) for the users of the centre. The student was also directly involved in its implementation. The objective of the intervention was to improve the emotional management skills of the young people who come to the service, and to prevent possible problems of anxiety and depression, which are usually associated with poor management of emotions.

Master's Thesis: Assessment of quality of life in people with functional diversity

  • Coordination: Ester Solé Pijuan (ester.sole(ELIMINAR)@urv.cat)
  • Community organization: Baix Camp Workshop.
  • Summary: This master's thesis was undertaken in the 2021-22 academic year and was intended to respond to the need of the Baix Camp Workshop for a protocol to evaluate the quality of life of people with intellectual disability who come to the centre. At first, the student compiles a list of the instruments currently available for evaluating the quality of life in people with intellectual disabilities and assesses their use and empirical support. The results of the assessment will be used to establish a protocol of the instruments that are most useful for the different users of the centre. The protocol will include recommendations about the most appropriate instruments for each user profile.
