Module overview

This module builds on the foundation clinical skills established in PSYC 8013. Trainees gain experience of clinical work in an additional setting offering experience of working with working age and/or older adults. Trainee clinical psychologists will gain an understanding of the role of clinical psychology within the service and experience of working within the team. Trainees will work with service users with a range of presenting problems typical of the service as defined in the placement contract. They will refine engagement skills and use their knowledge of a range of models including CBT, systemic approaches, and neuropsychological approaches to consolidate competencies in assessment, formulation, and evidence-based interventions, focussing on intervention skills, relapse prevention and therapeutic endings. Trainees will be encouraged to identify transferrable skills and to consider how these can be adapted to the individual needs of service users. The trainee is expected to attend the placement in person but also may be required to work in other placement settings or remotely.
