This subject integrates current research evidence and clinical theory in the planning and delivery of treatment for clinical disorders that emerge in childhood and adolescence. This subject focuses on the scientist–practitioner model in the delivery of evidence-based treatments and explores these aspects of professional practice as they apply to social, emotional and behavioural characteristics prevalent in this population. Key to the subject is an understanding of relevant ethical, legal and practical considerations in working with children and young people. Emphasis is placed on research evidence, assessment and diagnosis, clinical formulation and treatment, clinical disorders common in childhood and adolescence, and cultural competence.
Successful completion of this subject is required for progression to all second-year subjects in the Master of Clinical Psychology (C04300).
