    Course details

    Summary

    The Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Psychology (PGDipPsych(Clin)) is a three-year programme following the successful completion of the Bachelor of Social Sciences with Honours (BSocSc(Hons)) majoring in Psychology.

    The first two years of the programme are often taken concurrently with the Master of Social Sciences (MSocSc), but may also be coordinated with work toward a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD). In any case, either a Masters or a PhD must be completed before you can begin the final (internship) year of the programme.

    If you are interested in a PhD you should discuss your programme of study with the Convenor of the PGDipPsych(Clin) programme. The PGDipPsych(Clin) is comprised of academic coursework and supervised clinical practice.

    There is a gradual transition over the three years from an emphasis on didactic teaching and observation in the first year, to mainly supervised clinical experience (internships) in the final year. In all years, substantial independent work is required, such as accessing and reading journal articles and writing clinical reports and case studies.

    Clinical Psychology Programme

    Clinical psychology is a discipline characterized as an applied science, with a firm empirical foundation, and an emphasis on objective data to support assessment and treatment of persons who are experiencing psychological problems in their life.

    Training in clinical psychology is based on the “Boulder model” where the emphasis is on the use of research-based knowledge to develop practical competencies. An integration of science and practice is emphasized so that research informs practice, practical understanding and issues guide meaningful research, and individualized and unique clinical work is strengthened by scientific method.

    Clinical psychologists base their assessment and treatment on the evidence generated through research. Assessment and treatment with clients raises new questions which helps design research. For these reasons, clinical psychologists need to be trained in both practice and research as well the integration of the two.

    The Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Psychology is a three-year programme of study, usually taken concurrently with the Master of Social Sciences (MSocSc) or Doctor of Philosophy (PhD). The programme involves four professional papers and a twelve-month supervised internship.
