Content

This unit builds upon previous placement competencies and is aimed at providing students with the opportunity to further develop their health psychology skills. Students will be expected to demonstrate key competencies in ethical and professional frameworks as well as psychological assessment and intervention skills. Supervision on this placement will be aimed at increasing autonomy and responsibility as well as higher level integration of theory and practice.

 

Placements aim to provide students with opportunities to develop health psychology skills in a range of settings such as specialist agencies whose major focus is in the area of health promotion of preventative health care as well as clinical intervention and rehabilitation.

 


The placement program will be established jointly by the student, the placement coordinator, and the practitioners supervising the placement. 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 substantial 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 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 students to obtain feedback from staff and other students.
