Clinic Team IV builds on Clinic Team III (PSYC22005) to provide you with advanced practice skills required for the professional competencies in clinical psychology specified by the Australian Psychology Accreditation Council (APAC) and to prepare you for the Registrar Program to gain an Area of Practice Endorsement in Clinical Psychology with the Psychology Board of Australia. This includes the culturally-sensitive, evidence-based practice of clinical psychology, both autonomously and as a member of a multidisciplinary team. During your clinical practicum in a community-based setting, you will continue to develop your knowledge and skills to formulate and share case conceptualisations and intervention plans.
