PSYC 090 Practicum in Clinical Psychology An opportunity for advanced psychology students to gain supervised experience in off-campus clinical settings. Requirements include, but are not limited to, 8 hours per week in an off-campus placement, guided readings throughout the semester, and a major term paper. Students are expected to have "face-to-face" contact with clients/patients and to have an on-site supervisor. Students meet regularly with the instructor for discussion of readings and work experience. Students are responsible for arranging a placement, in consultation with the instructor in advance of the semester. Students should select several possible sites, make contact with them, and review the sites with the instructor. The department has a file of previous practicum sites. This helps students identify general categories as well as specific options. Students applying for this course must have at least a B average in psychology. Consult the department for details and an application form.
