PSYC E-380 Field Placement in Psychology
This course is for admitted Master of Liberal Arts candidates in psychology and clinical psychology. It is designed to complement a student's academic knowledge with hands-on field experience with a clinical population. Students spend 150 hours in a field placement that has been approved by Dr. Dante Spetter, studying psychopathology, psychological assessment, and/or psychotherapy as it applies to one or more discrete clinical conditions. Specific placements are arranged to compliment the individual students' academic and professional goals. In addition to time spent in the placement, students develop their own reading list, and write a term paper relating the academic and experiential aspects of their work.
