PSYC20027 Professional Practice
Professional Practice of Psychology is a core component
of the fourth year of study in Psychology. It aims to build on undergraduate
studies in Personality, Abnormal Psychology, Individual Differences
and Assessment, and Cross-Cultural Psychology for purposes of examining
skills and knowledge that are central to psychological practice.
In addition, it introduces students to major ethical issues in psychological
practice, and to problems of practising in a socially and culturally
pluralistic society. Students also learn how to apply methods and
techniques of psychological assessment in professional settings, and
about skills of report writing. Finally, students are introduced
to a variety of practice settings, and are required to apply their
knowledge of ethics and professional issues, assessment, and report
writing to professional activities that occur in those settings.
It is a requirement of enrolment that students have access to the
CQU website via the Internet.
