Leader: Professor Jim Ogloff


Clayton First semester 2007 (Day)


This unit comprises a two day workshop, held prior to the commencement of formal course-work, seminars, site visits and student presentations.
Material will be presented in various formats including didactic teaching, small group exercises and role plays. Seminars will be supplemented by readings and handouts. All students will participate in a small group presentation on a relevant topic. Each presentation will consist of proximately 40 minutes followed by 20 minutes of class discussion. The site visits are designed to expose students to a range of different demands that psychologists face in different work environments.


Assessment is based on participation in class discussion, the group presentation, and the written handout prepared in relation to the group presentation. Each student is graded as pass or fail on these bases. Students are expected to attend at least 85% of the classes and three of the four site visits.
