Content

This unit is aimed at providing students with the opportunity to establish their clinical psychology skills. Students will be expected to demonstrate key competencies in ethical and professional frameworks as well as psychological assessment and intervention skills. Placements aim to provide students with opportunities to develop clinical psychology skills in a range of settings such as adult, child, adolescent, acute, chronic, inpatient, community, forensic, and/or rehabilitation services. It is expected that for this unit students will undertake either an adult OR a child/adolescent placement that will complement other placement units.

The placement program will be established jointly by the student, the placement coordinator, and the practitioners supervising the placement. This will include the minimum amount of face-to-face contact time with clients and the minimum supervision requirements. Placement Learning Contracts will specify learning objectives and key competencies as well as the responsibilities of the student, the Agency Supervisor and the Placement coordinator. Students will be required to have client contact and carry their own caseload, under supervision. Student’s performance will be reviewed at a mid and end of placement meeting. All meetings and paperwork are to be completed and are considered part of the unit requirements.     

This unit also consists of an Inter-professional Education (IPE) Online Unit. This involves self-directed IPE topics where students explore key themes relating to collaboration, health professionals roles, leadership, conflict management, and team development. There is also a case conference stream where students apply the knowledge and skills acquired through the self-directed IPE stream and work as an inter-professional team. Weekly discussions with their team via CloudDeakin and developing a care plan for four interesting cases is required.

Assessment

Assessment task 1: Attendance for a minimum of 50 days
Assessment task 2: Presentation of logbook to the University Supervisor at the final placement review meeting (completion of the placement)
Assessment task 3: Satisfactory report on professional and ethical competence of the student from the Placement Supervisor and University Supervisor at the final placement review meeting (completion of the placement)
Assessment task 4: Satisfactory case report of approximately 4000 words written by the student and submitted to the University Supervisor within 21 days of completion of placement.
Assessment task 5: Satisfactory completion of the IPE online unit

These assessment and procedural components constitute 100% of the assessment for this unit and failure to satisfactorily complete the requirements of any one component will result in the student failing the unit, preclude the admission of the student to the next placement and may result in the student's exclusion from the course.
