PSY 580 Overview
The clinical practicum provides students with their first clinical field experiences under the direction of licensed field supervisors. A wide variety of placement sites are available and group supervision is simultaneously provided by university faculty. Students learn to apply knowledge from previous coursework to real-world clinical situations and face-to-face client interactions. The practicum starts with clinical shadowing and gradually works to more autonomous levels of practice as the student progresses to the clinical internship class. Completion of this course entails a minimum of 100 hours of supervised practicum experience with at least 40 hours of face-to-face client contact, one hour per week of individual or triadic supervision and 90 minutes per week of group supervision.
