To practise with a level of expertise required by a Clinical psychologist, psychologists must be able to understand and critically apply psychological models and practice to specific fields. This practicum builds on the generalist skills and knowledge acquired in earlier practicum courses to develop skills specific to the area of Clinical Psychology. It is anticipated that students will be capable of more independent work at this stage in their training and will self-manage the mandatory requirements for practice and supervision logbooks and placement reviews.

The assessment in this course is competency-based. Students will achieve either a pass or fail for each assessment. Students need to pass all assessment items to successfully complete the course. These competency items form part of the UniSQ accreditation agreement with the accrediting organisation/s (where relevant).

This practicum course provides students with a structured situation in which to develop knowledge and skills within the Clinical psychology field. The level of independent practice and the application to specialist areas challenges the student to broaden and diversify beyond their responsibilities in the first placement.
