    Hi all,
    I've just translated a sentence but it seems there's something that doesn't work with my English translation, I would really appreciate if someone could give it a check.
    The Master’s Degree in Multicultural assessment in clinical psychology aims to provide epistemic, theoretical and techinical competences allowing professionals to work with immigrant custumers at an individual, couple, family and social level in the clinical field.
    here's the Italian:
    Il Master universitario in Assessment multiculturale in psicologica clinica mira a fornire le competenze epistemologiche, teoriche e tecniche per poter operare in campi clinici con utenti immigrati a livello individuale, di coppia, famigliare e sociale.

    Many thanks to everyone!

    The Master's Degree in Clinical Psychology - Multicultural Assessment will provide both theoretical and practical knowledge, allowing professionals to work with immigrant clients at the levels of the individual, family and social system.

    Many variations on the theme.

    I would use the word expertise or proficiency instead of competences.

    Nope. I intentionally left them out.
    Unnecessary and they usually make up a "family".

    Not at all -- couples' therapy and family therapy are distinct practices and specialties. This is a master's in psych we're talking about!
