The placement aims to develop student's assessment and professional skills and is facilitated through partnership with Barwon Health's Mental Health, Drug and Alcohol Services (MHDAS) located in Geelong and surrounding regions. The placement enables students to observe MHDAS facilities, staff and clients together with participating in assessment and treatment planning. Supervision will be provided either by a Clinical Psychologist within the student's placement setting or by another Clinical Psychologist should the first option not be possible.
The unit includes a Case Analysis seminar, which is attended by all first year clinical students and facilitated by staff. Within this seminar, students will be required to provide a case presentation from their placement experience. This is a formal presentation to peers and staff of the client's symptoms, history, assessments, diagnosis of the disorder using DMS-IV-TR, case formulation and a consideration of appropriate treatment strategies consistent with the formulation.
