THEORIES AND TECHNIQUES OF CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGY
Learning outcomes of the course unit
The clinical training program is intended to provide preparation for research/academic careers in Clinical Psychology, Psychopathology or Personality. Clinical training (in assessment, diagnosis and psychotherapy) is seen as an integral part of the education of highly qualified, creative clinical scientists.
Students who participate in the clinical training program fall under the same general academic requirements as other graduate students in the department.
