PSYC6075: Case and Research Seminars 3

This unit of study will continue the case and research seminars introduced in PSYC6073 Case and Research Seminars 2. 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. Students will prepare case reports written up from an external placement. 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. MCP students will present their research.
