This unit of study will continue the case and research seminars introduced in PSYC6072 Case and Research Seminars 1. All students are required to attend and contribute to discussion of case and research seminar presentations throughout the semester, and are expected to attend the School Colloquium. All students will present a clinical case and prepare written case report(s). The case presentation requirement ensures that students demonstrate their clinical psychology competencies in a format in which they use oral presentation skills and critical thinking skills in needing to repond to on-the-spot questions and feedback from clinically qualified academic staff. The case report requirement ensures that students demonstrate competent report writing skills, and that they are provided with feedback from clinically qualified staff on competencies including assessment and history taking, formulation, the development and implementation of an intervention plan, and the monitoring of its effectiveness. Students are required to complete one adult therapy, one child assessment or therapy, and one assessment case report across all case and research seminars units of study.
