This unit is designed to provide students with both the theoretical and practical framework for advanced clinical practice relevant to the treatment of complex conditions and clients. It focuses on skill acquisition in specific interventions relevant to this broad area, building upon and extending the knowledge and skills developed in Psychological Interventions 1 and 2. Interventions for complex conditions such as chronic pain and psychosis or clients with personality disorders and chronic mood disorders will be discussed as well as adapting therapy for clients with diversity such as older adults, those with intellectual disability and from differing cultural backgrounds. Opportunities to develop clinical competency in these areas will occur through case analysis, simulation, practical rehearsal (role-play) and individualised feedback.


Assessment task 1: Therapy analysis and treatment plan (3000 words) 50%
