This unit considers the practical issues relevant to the experience of psychology practice. Lectures will outline key theoretical models and evidence-based treatments for specific adult psychological disorders, as well as key professional practice issues. Classroom discussion and exercises will provide an opportunity to develop key cognitive behavioural therapy skills. Where appropriate, lectures will be supplemented with audio-visual material and handouts, and students should be prepared to role play elements of the key therapy skills when discussed.
