Scheduled learning activities - campus

50 days supervised placement


Through our placement partnerships, students will be able to continue to establish and demonstrate their clinical skills in assessment, case formulation and intervention with individuals and/or groups. Placements aim to provide students with a broad range of experiences across various presenting issues and settings such as child/youth, adult, aged, inpatient, outpatient, community, forensic and/or rehabilitation services.

Placements will involve individualised learning objectives developed in consultation with the Student, Agency Supervisor and Placement Coordinator. This is to be documented on the Supervision Contract which also outlines roles, responsibilities and requirements. Students will be required to carry a caseload under supervision and as placements’ progress students will increase their client contact. Supervision is an essential part of placement and will over time focus on increased autonomy and responsibility as well as higher level integration of theory and practice. Student's performance will be reviewed at a mid and end of placement meeting and measured across the core competencies as per the Mid and End of Placement Supervisor Report.

Students will also engage in single-subject case study methodology, using a scientist-practitioner mindset, which will be used to develop their four research case reports (DPsych) across the placement units.

All meetings and paperwork are to be completed and are considered part of the unit requirements.

Hurdle requirement

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.
