PSYC615 - Practicum C

20 cp
Prerequisites: PSYC614 Practicum B
Teaching Organisation: 2 hours Case Conference per week for twelve weeks, or equivalent.

This is the third of the series of units in which students as provisional psychologists gain experience in the delivery of psychological services in a real-world setting to complement the theoretical and simulated learning that takes place in the coursework units. The emphasis is on skill development in a supervised, structured environment. Students will be encouraged to approach applied problems and skill based learning from a hypothesis based assessment perspective consistent with a scientist-practitioner model. Students also take part in a weekly group case conference. Professional ethics and behaviours are an integral part of learning in this unit. The aim of this unit is to facilitate the development of confidence, competence and readiness to practice clinical work independently without close or regular supervision.
