Content

This unit builds upon previous placement competencies and is aimed at providing students with the opportunity to further enhance their clinical psychology skills. Students will be expected to demonstrate key competencies in ethical and professional frameworks as well as higher level integration of theory and practice.

 

Placements aim to provide students with opportunities to develop clinical psychology skills in a range of setting 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 their previous placement.



The placement program will be established jointly by the student, the placement coordinator and their 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 increase their client contact and carry a caseload, under supervision. The student's performance will be reviewed at a mid and end of placement meeting. All meetings and paperwork are to be completed and considered part of the unit requirements.

 

The unit also involves regular attendance at case analysis seminars. Students will be required to present a case or issue from their placement. These seminars will provide the opportunity for staff to obtain feedback from staff and other students.
