Credit points: 6
Year: 2022
Student Contribution Band: Band 4
Administered by: College of Healthcare Sciences

Students will complete a minimum of 1000 hours placement across all placement subjects within the clinical psychology course at JCU. In this placement subject, students will complete at least 300 hours of practice across one or more practice settings, working in a different context to that experienced in Clinical psychology placement A. Students will receive supervision as they demonstrate application of clinical and professional skills to provide effective, ethical, evidence-based assessments and interventions for clients. Students are expected to perform clinical practice with greater autonomy/independence than as demonstrated in placement A, progressing towards attainment of competent independent practice. Students will participate in feedback processes to develop ongoing learning plans and self-reflexive practice, and will participate in supervised case consultations.
