The advanced practicum consists of group and individual supervision of clinical work in the Center for Psychological Services. The main goals of this course are to (a) help students increase their ability to provide evidence-based clinical services, (b) ensure that students work with their clients in a competent and ethical manner, and (c) help students develop their ability to provide constructive feedback on the professional work of their peers. There is no required textbook, but the instructors (and students) will provide relevant readings for discussion throughout the course. References for several required articles are listed at the end of the syllabus. These readings are available on Blackboard. No mental health evaluations will be required. There are no written exams, but there are written documents to be completed from client contacts.
