The Year 2 practicum course comprises two community-based placements where students work with children and families under the supervision of a registered and experienced psychologist, along with an academic programme that supports this practical experience. Through teaching and learning activities, students will gain further advanced skills relevant to professional practice in Child and Family Psychology, including psychological intervention with parents and children for mental health, behaviour, and developmental needs. Students will develop their competency in the design and delivery of individualised interventions informed by the current evidence-base.
