Module Description

This module aims to assess the students capacity to develop as a psychodynamic practitioner on placement, using the learning from the rest of the course. As such it is at the core of the course, showing the students developing professional identity and counselling skill. The student will be working with approximately 3 clients each week, receiving weekly supervision, as a minimum, from an external supervisor. A pass or fail grading will be provided by the supervisor, but in addition the learning from the module will be assessed by means of a detailed case study based on the placement experience.
