Leerdoelen The main goal of this course:
Gaining knowledge and skills regarding diagnostics and interventions (face-to-face and Internet-based) aimed at children, adolescents and adults. Moreover, learning to
develop Internet-based modules and interventions.
After this course students are able to:
- apply diagnostics, face-to-face,- and Internet-based interventions to children, adolescents and adults with single case mental health problems in a clinical internship,
- apply advanced communication skills and online communication skills on single case mental health problems,
- work out a case conceptualization,
- formulate a treatment plan and treatment goals,
- justify choices made with regard to diagnostics, interventions and therapeutic contact (i.e. choice of medium, style and content),
- reflect on their own learning process from the perspective of a therapist and client,
- develop Internet-based modules and being able to justify choices made with regard to the developed modules
Omschrijving The course is very suitable for students in the research master Clinical Psychology who are interested in pursuing a career combining research with clinical work.
The course has three weekly parts, namely a practical skills-training, an integrative e-health development project, and a cognitive therapy practice project.
During the first part of each week, an intervention and the therapeutic process is discussed. After this theoretical introduction, students will practice and improve their skills using case material (including footage of treatments from PsycTherapy) with corresponding assignments. Students will practice in role-plays with different phases of the therapeutic process, starting with "introduction and assessment", then moving onto "formulating and executing a treatment plan", and ending with "treatment evaluation". The focus is on the following interventions: exposure (anxiety disorders), behavioural activation (depression), habit reversal (unwanted habits), identifying, challenging and modifying dysfunctional beliefs and, finally, parent training.
During the second half day of the week, students form subgroups and develop Internet-based modules and interventions themselves, using the knowledge they gained from the clinical interventions and techniques during the first part of the week. The software used is relatively easy to grasp and therefore the focus is on the content rather than the technical aspects of e-health interventions.
Thirdly, an integration between diagnostics/assessments and interventions takes place via the ‘Cognitive therapy practice project’ (CTPP). In CTPP, students practice with an online cognitive therapy aimed at the prevention of depressive relapse, from the perspective of a therapist as well as a client. The online treatment is suitable for ‘healthy subjects’ and handles topics such as daily hassles, dysfunctional beliefs and automatic negative thoughts. The therapeutic contact between students takes place through several forms of media (‘blended care’), such as: face-to-face meetings, meetings via telephone and/or Skype, e-mail and chat.
Note that this course runs in parallel with the regular English language master course MKV-3. Intervention skills are trained jointly, while the development of new interventions takes place with research master students separately. Research master students get an additional individual assignment to present during the final practical session.
