This subject contains a 2.5 day Compulsory Residential School.
Residential schools within the Master of Clinical Psychology course have a number of aims, including:
1. Provision of face-to-face contact opportunities between students and academic staff. This contact can involve didactic-type presentations from a variety of academic staff members and guest speakers, interactive discussions of clinical topics, and direct observation and assessment of student competencies in a variety of areas.
2. Provision of face-to-face contact opportunities between students. It is hoped that each cohort of students will take the opportunity to develop as a supportive and collegial professional network. Face-to-face contact helps to consolidate the relationships that are developed through interaction online.
3. Facilitation of access to University resources held in the main library and the Psychology Resource Library.
The PSY539 Adult Treatments 2 residential school activities will include:
- Viewing video-recorded demonstrations of various approaches to psychological therapy with specific populations, followed by group discussion.
- Staff-led case presentation and discussions.
- Small-group learning activities and role-plays
- Student presentation and discussion of techniques and procedures used in psychological therapy.
