In this unit students undertake a practical internship within the Psychology Clinic of the university. In addition to a client case load, students engage in practicum training, and participate in Case Analysis Seminars attended by all first year clinical students and facilitated by staff. Within these seminars, students will be required to present a case from their case load. This is a formal presentation to peers and staff of the client's symptoms, history, assessments, diagnosis of the disorder using DMS-IV-TR, case formulation and a consideration of appropriate treatment strategies consistent with the formulation. The intensive supervision and applied focus of this first placement is designed to develop skills and increase the competence of interns in managing a therapeutic caseload in preparation for their subsequent externships.
