PSY 773-775 Doctoral Practicum: Case Conceptualization, Assessment and Treatment Planning (1.5, 1.5, 1)
Students are introduced to foundational and science-informed principles in case conceptualization, assessment, and treatment planning for applied clinical psychology. Attention is directed to: 1) an examination of theoretical perspectives most appropriate for current clinical work; 2) developing premises, supporting materials and conclusions for conceptualizations; and 3) developing treatment plans consistent with the underlying conceptualization addressing both short-term and longer-term goals, and diagnostic impressions. One course objective is to examine the congruence between assessment, diagnosis, case conceptualization and the development of treatment goals.
Students are engaged in a minimum of 15 hours per week of clinical activity in field placements.
