CLINICAL NEUROPSYCHOLOGY PRACTICUM B

PSY5NPB

2014

Credit points: 10

Subject outline

This placement is based at both the University Psychology Clinic (internal) and selected external placement agencies. The placement requires 35 days of practical experience and the student develops skills in interviewing and history taking with the more general presentation of clients in the clinic setting, and more specifically for the neuropsychological focussed history taking in the external placement. This practicum emphasises interpretation of test results and report writing. The skill development gained during the placement is supported by presentation of case material entries in the case analysis seminar, which allows for feedback on content, style, presentation and tone of the case reports. Supervised casework is also undertaken within the University Psychology Clinic in order to allow intensive supervising feedback necessary for skill development.
