This unit is designed to provide students with both the theoretical and practical framework for advanced clinical practice relevant to two broad areas: relational-based therapy and the treatment of complex conditions and clients. It focuses on skill acquisition in specific interventions relevant to these two broad areas, building upon and extending the knowledge and skills developed in Psychological Interventions 1 and 2. The relational-based therapy component focuses primarily on the treatment of couples and other interpersonal therapies. The second area concerns interventions for complex conditions or clients such as personality disorders and chronic mood disorders as well as adapting therapy for clients from diverse cultural backgrounds. Opportunities to develop clinical competency in these areas will occur through case analysis, simulation, practical rehearsal (roleplay) and individualised feedback.
