Module overview

The module provides an initial experience of the role of the Clinical Psychologist in an NHS service, providing for adults across the adult lifespan (either working age and/or older adults). Trainee Clinical Psychologists will gain an understanding of the role of Clinical Psychology within the wider service and experience of contributing effectively as part of a multidisciplinary team. Trainees will work with service users with a range of presenting problems typical of the service with reference to the guidelines produced by the relevant special interest group. They will develop engagement skills which take into account the age, culture, gender, class and beliefs of the client. Trainees will use their knowledge and critical appraisal of evidence-based models from a range of models including systemic and neuropsychological with particular focus on developing clinical and CBT skills. The trainee is expected to attend the placement in person but also may be required to work in other placement settings or remotely.
