Synopsis

The first Practicum is designed to provide students with a structured situation in a clinical agency in which appropriate psychological skills can be developed to high levels of competency. It gives the student the opportunity to examine applied problems from a theoretical perspective and to then apply theoretically derived interventions. It promotes a scientist-practitioner model of the professional psychologist. Students will be encouraged to approach applied problems and skill based learning from a hypothesis based assessment perspective. The emphasis is on skill development in a supervised, structured environment. Expert feedback on performance is seen as an essential feature of the learning process and strong emphasis is placed on skill development under adequate supervision.
