The placement at Eastern Health is designed to equip students with a range of professional skills and an awareness of professional issues. It provides the opportunity to learn specific clinical intervention skills (such as suicide intervention) as well as visit many of the facilities in which Clinical Psychologists work within the public health system. Students will learn about the interface between clinical psychology and other professionals within a hospital and community setting. They will have the opportunity to observe clinical work being undertaken and take part in some assessments and interventions at the hospital's psychiatric services. In the Case Analysis seminar students will be required to provide a case presentation from their placement, covering the presenting symptoms, assessment techniques employed, diagnosis of the disorder using DSM-V and appropriate treatment strategies.
