Reflective Practice and Placement 2 - PSYC6086

This unit is designed to extend clinical assessment, formulation, treatment planning, and treatment implementation skills and knowledge for adult and child patients. It also extends trainees' knowledge and experience conducting and interpreting psychometric assessments. Trainees will be allocated to new supervisors for this placement and supervision methods will become less intense, more individual and begin to reflect formats available in external placements. A secondary aim of this unit is to develop students' awareness of complex processes in the therapy room, both those presented by the patient, in the therapeutic relationship and in the internal dialogue of the clinician. Further exploration of critical and philosophical issues will be offered explored to enable students to contextualize the therapies they provide and reflect on them from a wider perspective. Units include a focus on complex psychodynamic phenomenon, as conceptualised in contemporary evidence-based practice and support the development of mature reflective children who are able to focus on both professional and personal development across their careers.
