Clinical psychologists offer psychological assessment and treatment for a wide range of mental health problems. This course is designed to provide applicants with training across a host of mental health issues and settings. It will equip students with the skills and knowledge you need to effectively meet the diverse needs of clients.
At Western, our mandate is to develop your understanding through coursework, a research project, and 1,000 hours of supervised experience in clinical and other appropriate settings. You will also explore the inner workings of the human mind, be given the knowledge and skills you need to understand dysfunctional behaviour and psychopathology, and learn how to implement effective evidence-based interventions, including cognitive behavioural therapy. It provides thorough training in a range of mental health issues and equips you with the ability to implement effective evidence-based interventions that are tailored to clients' requirements.
This course is fully accredited by the Australian Psychology Accreditation Council, and the Australian Psychological Society College of Clinical Psychologists.
Applicants will be subject to competitive selection based on academic merit, two referee reports and performance at a selection interview to determine capability for practitioner competency. Selection interviews are held between October and December each year.
International qualifications must also be assessed by the Australian Psychology Society (APS) before applying for entry into the Master of Clinical Psychology. The APS must deem the qualification to be equivalent to an Australian four year sequence in psychology (including an honours equivalent research thesis component) to be considered.
