Clinical Psychology Practical Placement 2 - PSYC982

This unit is offered on a pass/fail basis.

This unit is the second practical placement unit for the Master of Clinical Psychology program and is conducted in an external clinical service under the supervision of Adjunct Fellows of Macquarie University. The placement provides the opportunity to build upon competencies in Clinical psychology, demonstrated in Practical Placement 1 in the Psychology Clinic, to an intermediate level. Activities include face-to-face assessment and treatment of genuine clients of the service; professional administrative tasks such as risk management, note keeping and report writing; and supervision activities, both individual and group as required and available in the external setting. A range of general clinical work with adults and children is mandatory and may include anxiety, depression, trauma, personality disorders and medical problems, as well as practice working in different therapeutic approaches. By the time students finish this first external placement unit, they will have further developed competencies in 10 domains as identified by the accrediting body APAC as Core Competencies to become a Clinical Psychologist.
