Module overview

This module aims to provide you with the opportunity to become fluent in increasingly independent consultative casework addressing a range of needs, and with a range of problem owners relating to the perceived needs of children and young people (0-25) through the processes of consultation, assessment, intervention and review. Within their new context, you are again encouraged to make use of opportunities for joint working with other professional groups

At the end of this module you should be able to demonstrate the skills of an applied psychologist working within a local authority. This module integrates the prior learning from PSYC 8041 and 8042, and aims to provide you with the opportunity to generalise and adapt your consultative casework skills to novel contexts and presenting issues. At the end of the year you should meet both the HCPC Standards of Proficiency and the BPS Core Competencies.

You are assessed on these skills by means of a casework viva in which you discuss three self-selected pieces of casework and are expected to consider the following factors:

  • The legal and ethical boundaries of educational psychology
  • Non-discriminatory practice
  • Confidentiality
  • Informed consent
  • Professional duty of care
  • Effective self-management and resources
  • Working in partnership with other professional support staff service users and their families
  • Effective communication
