For further information see School of Health Sciences


The final year of the PGDipChFamPsych is designed to support the attainment of the core competencies required for practice as a Child and Family Psychologist. Through the three year 3 courses, students will further develop their understanding of advanced and complex psychological assessment, formulation and intervention. This includes the integration and application of a range of psychological models of practice for working with children, youth, their parents/carers and whanau, and other professionals. Students will also engage with culturally-responsive and Maori-centred bodies of knowledge across all areas of practice. Students will develop skills of critical and constructive self-reflection, including understanding the role of supervision and continuing professional development. The ethical and professional behaviour of a psychologist will be inherent in all activities in the internship year.
