CRN: 3897

Credits: 1

​This course is required for 1st year clinical psychology students and involves training at The Safran Center for Psychological Services. During the required 8-hour practicum, first-year clinical students will carry 2 cases at time in individual psychotherapy for 20 sessions per case. Students will receive 2 hours of weekly supervision (individual and group). Students will also participate in a year-long weekly practicum course led by the Center Director. Students will learn, practice, and hone diagnostic and risk assessment, initial formulation, treatment planning, and clinical documentation. Students will also gain practice in conceptualizing and presenting their cases; they will present videotaped segments of their clinical work for group discussion and supervision. These meetings additionally provide opportunities for students to address administrative and clinical issues related to their work at The Safran Center. Students are required to complete two clinical case assignments, attend supervision and case conference weekly, read and be prepared to discuss assigned readings, and participate actively during the open discussions. Students' progress in their clinical work is assessed by individual and group supervisors twice per academic year, allowing ample feedback on each student's development as a clinician. Meeting time is Wednesday 4:00pm-5:50pm. Client contact and supervision hours are flexible and dependent on student, supervisor and client schedules.
