For further information see School of Health Sciences


The final year of the PGDipChFamPsych is designed to advance and deepen your practice as a psychologist. Across all three internship year courses, we structure and direct your learning regarding specialist skills and core competencies. You will further develop your 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. You will also engage with culturally-responsive and Maori-centred bodies of knowledge across all areas of practice. You 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.
