Module prerequisites:Non-Psychology students (including non-Psychology affiliates) must visit the link below to establish whether they can take this module. Students should have an appropriate background in the subject area and must complete the ‘Module Request Form’, failure to do so will result in rejection on Portico.”  
Module outline:Lectures cover general psychological processes in therapeutic encounters, specific problems and their treatment, particular models of intervention, and research on outcome of treatment. After an introduction to all lectures and discussion of efficacy of psychological therapies, early lectures address childhood disorders, followed by adult disorders, and the series closes with several lectures on processes of therapy and application to chronic health problems. The topics build upon those taught in PSYC2206, Clinical and Health Psychology, to minimise overlap, so it is an advantage to have taken this course but it is not a formal requirement.  
Module aims:To provide an introduction to clinical psychology; to demonstrate the application of psychological theory to common problems in mental and physical health; to inform students of recent advances within clinical psychology theory and practice. 
Module objectives:Students should come to appreciate common models of theory-based assessment and formulation which underlie evidence-based treatment in clinical psychology. They will recognise the complexities of evaluating treatment outcome and how research studies both draw upon and contribute to psychological science.
