COU690 Advanced Supervised Practice and Analysis I in Psychotherapy (ASPAP I) aims to integrate theories and practice, with an emphasis to develop further the awareness, knowledge, skills, and person of the therapist, in working with diverse client groups in local contexts. This module is a 32 hour group supervision and practice research project. It would be conducted using a 3 hourly session format, involving “moment by moment” intensive supervised practice and research using a case analysis method. Using a group supervision format, students would be closely supervised by a recognised and experienced clinical supervisor in a group of only 10 students. The group supervision employs a variety of clinical activities (e.g., live supervision, reflecting teams, audio/videotaped clinical session, role plays, case discussion and analysis etc). Students would be exposed to either a specific approach (e.g., CBT), and/or clientele (e.g., children), and/or mental health issues or challenges (e.g., grief). Depending on the students’ learning objectives and professional development goals, learning needs, relevant experience, performance, and suitability, as well as available teaching resources, and clientele needs, students will be screened, selected, and organised according to available teaching resources by the HoP, AF and agencies concerned, where applicable.
