PY 604 - Advanced Practicum Seminar

Prerequisite(s): PY 506 . This is the first course in the Advanced Practicum sequence. The Advanced Practicum is designed to offer students advanced experience in a particular area of interest. This course provides a small consultation group in which students examine relevant clinical and professional development issues that arise as the result of participation in Advanced Practica. Students present practicum cases to gain mastery in the integration of theory and practice. Case conceptualizations consider client/therapist relationship, broad system issues (e.g., family, school, community, court, political, other treatment professionals/programs), and areas of diversity and difference (e.g., race, ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, socioeconomic status) as contextual variables. (Pass/Fail) (2 credits)
