Description

Conversations about clinical psychology and related pathways in applied psychology

14th March 2018, 5-7pm

The School of Psychology and the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at the University of Liverpool are developing a series of sessions for undergraduate psychology students who have an interest in clinical psychology training, or other area of applied psychology (e.g., forensic, educational). These sessions form part of the broader employability initiatives in the School of Psychology that aim to assist undergraduates in identifying and preparing for employment following graduation.

Aim: the aim of these sessions is to provide a space where interested undergraduates will have the opportunity to engage with a small group of clinical psychology trainees. The sessions will present an opportunity to learn and ask questions about the experiences of current trainees who have diverse academic, employment, and training backgrounds; to gain advice on identifying relevant work opportunities and experience; and to consider your next steps in preparing for a career in applied psychology. The aim of these sessions is not to offer employability advice more generally as this is provided by the university’s Careers and Employability Service.

Initial pilot phase: the initial pilot phase will consist of drop in sessions offering the chance for groups of 20-30 undergraduates to learn about the experiences of current clinical trainees. There will also be opportunities to ask questions and engage in discussion. There will be three sessions running in parallel, and we will therefore be able to accommodate 80-100 students. Priority will be given to Year 3 students, followed by Year 2. The assignment of places is on a first come, first served basis.

When and where: Wednesday 14th March 2018, between 5pm and 7pm, Eleanor Rathbone Building 2.62 A, 2.62 B, and 2.65

Who: Students in the 2nd or 3rd year of their undergraduate psychology degree program who have an interest in clinical psychology or other applied psychology training.
