PY 76300 - Advanced Practicum


(2) (variable) Students will work with clients in a community placements to practice advanced counseling skills under the supervision of a licensed practicing professional. Students will work with the Director of Counseling Training and the site supervisor to develop practicum training plans outlining learning objectives for each practicum. Building on the competencies demonstrated in Practicum, students in Advanced Practicum will demonstrate the ability to apply psychological testing information to case conceptualization and intervention development; use  relevant research literature to assist clinical decision making; modify and adapt evidence-based approaches effectively when a clear evidence-base is lacking; evaluate  intervention  effectiveness; and  adapt  intervention  goals  and  methods  consistent  with  ongoing evaluation. As part of the practicum requirements, students will typically attend weekly group supervision, provided by APU faculty in addition to other practicum requirements. Students in the PsyD programs will need to complete a total of six credits of Advanced Practicum to meet minimal degree requirements; the class may be retaken as needed to meet program credit requirements. Prerequisite: 6 credits in PY 69600 Practicum . Offered Fall/Spring/Summer. The course has the potential to touch on APA’s Profession Wide Competencies, #1 through #7.
