How the unit is taught: There are weekly seminars each lasting two hours. The venue is W5C Room 220, Tuesdays 18:00-20:00. Students work in small groups using a problem based learning approach. Five problem scenarios will be presented (each runs for two weeks) and students use a clinical reasoning process to develop an assessment and a management plan grounded in relevant psychological theory and research.
Attendance: Students must attend the seminars in this course and will not be able to sit for the final examination unless they have attended at least 85% (11/13) of the seminars. The classes involve active learning/problem solving working in small groups and the material will not be recorded. The introductory and final lectures are also not recorded.
Resources: All unit resources and communication will occur through the ilearn site:
Prescribed text: There is no prescribed textbook.
Required readings will be made available in E-reserve and links will be provided along with support materials related to each case scenario at the end of the first week working on the case. Core readings for introductory and concluding lectures will also be provided.
Technologies used and required: No special technologies. Internet access for E-reserve and ilearn site.
