|Subject Overview:||In this placement a range of experiences appropriate to the setting are designed by the Field Supervisor and Practical Placement Co-ordinator. These include familiarisation of a unique setting through an induction process; independent experiences in individual services - observation, assessment, interviewing and reporting; program implementation; increased access to professional issues - confidentiality, ethics, identity, networks; professional literature and research. During this placement students are required to conduct themselves in a professional manner with an appropriate degree of autonomy; undertake psycho-educational assessments independently and effectively report on their findings to a range of audiences; undertake small group discussions, interviews, programs and interventions with appropriate negotiation, documentation and evaluation and display sensitivity and skills in counselling, interviewing problem solving, and consultation tasks. There are up to three lectures covering ethical issues in professional practice and the skills required in report writing.|
|Objectives:||Information not available|
|Assessment:||Students are required to successfully complete the formal requirements of the placements including attendance for the required number of days. Assessment occurs on a continuous basis throughout the placement process. A combination of measures is applied to gain an understanding of the student's progress which include: completion of a log book including an account of a case study derived directly from the field placement (approximately 1,500 words; 30 per cent); formal assessment by the field supervisor (70 per cent). |
