This unit will provide students with the advanced knowledge, skills and abilities needed to practice as a clinical psychologist working with complex presentations.
Students will attend 6 day-long workshops during the semester.
The application of inclusive and culturally responsive assessment of complex psychological disorders and comorbid presentations is explored across the lifespan. Working from a scientist-practitioner model, students will develop advanced competencies related to synthesise behavioural, psychometric, and clinical interview data to inform case formulation, dignosis and intervention of complex presentations.
