This module takes place in Semester 2 and builds on the skills you have acquired in engaging people with change. Taking on leadership responsibilities is a key requirement of clinical psychologists and this module covers the leadership and management skills essential for psychologists (and anyone
working in teams or organizations) to develop.
Effective leadership for clinical psychologists at all career stages can be strengthened by an awareness of personal qualities and values and the application of psychological skills and knowledge. The module encourages you to reflect on your experiences of having worked in small groups and to think about how your psychological understanding eg. of diversity or response to loss,
can be transferred to different situations such as managing change in teams.
Leadership involves developing services and you will be helped to set up a placement to provide you with experience in a health/mental health/caring setting to help you to develop theory practice links and to set the context for designing a small scale service development. You will be taught how to find funding for the proposed development, a key skill in these times of austerity.
