This approach assists students to develop a flexible and client focused approach to practice, consistent with contemporary standards for evidence-based practice in clinical psychology. Students learn to conceptualise and treat clinical presentations using relational psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioural, systemic, and narrative therapeutic approaches. Graduates of this course have the knowledge and competence to provide assessment and treatment across the lifespan.
