RMIT’s Master of Clinical Psychology program provides outstanding training in the core capabilities and attributes of Clinical Psychology, as prescribed by the Australian Psychology Accreditation Council (APAC) and the Australian Psychological Society (APS).
The training encompasses a wide range of theoretical and applied topics, such as knowledge of psychological principles, application of psychological theories and models, design and implementation of psychological interventions, ethical, legal and professional aspects of psychological practice, psychological assessment and measurement, applied research and evaluation, and communication and interpersonal relationships.
Advanced skills in assessment, diagnosis and treatment are imparted through intensive, small-group face-to-face didactic lectures/seminars, tutorials, case presentations, role plays and workshops. Students receive ample opportunities to develop advanced therapeutic skills within a cognitive-behavioural framework and other contemporary evidence-based theoretical paradigms, utilising the scientist-practitioner model.
Our program focuses on the life-span approach with a special emphasis on cultural aspects of health and illness.
The main objective of our program is to provide trainees with the advanced knowledge and clinical skills that will enable them to function as professional clinical psychologists in a wide range of health, community and allied settings.
