- Clinical placements are an essential part of the learning on this professional training. Students will put into practice the knowledge and skills gained during the first year seminars and the taught components of the second, third and fourth years. Supervision both in the placement and at the New School will monitor the application of these skills through the regular presentation of practice logs, self-evaluation reports, transcripts of client work and case studies. Supervision is offered on a weekly, intensive and online basis, but the syllabus and guidelines for transcripts et cetera remain the same.
- Each student will bring appropriate clinical material that will be examined and discussed in terms of the student’s own contributions to the therapeutic process. Students are required to critically consider their own interventions and their client’s material. They are also required to give feedback to their peers and learn from the overall clinical discussion in the session. Students will be required to present verbatim client material at least once during the term. Students should attend groups facilitated by at least two different supervisors during the programme of their training. Students should also have two terms with the same supervisor, but no more than three terms with the same supervisor.
- At the end of each year, i.e. three terms of placement and supervision the student will produce a long case study of 3000 words.
