The Clinical Psychology Programme celebrated the end of the first placement for the fourth years yesterday by holding a poster presentation event in the Nidd Building. The Community Psychology placement is the only placement that is provided by third sector services in Hull. The placement period is six weeks and trainees are on placement for three days a week. During this six weeks the trainees also receive Community and Critical psychology teaching and are involved in weekly reflective practice groups and individual supervision sessions. The aim of the placement and these forums is to support the development of skills and knowledge in the theory base of Community and Critical Psychology, reflective practice skills, personal and professional development.
Trainees were required to design a poster that shared their reflections on and experiences of the placement and to think about this from a Community Psychology perspective. Placement mentors, Faculty colleagues and colleagues from the Psychology programme joined the trainees and Clinical Psychology Programme course team at the poster presentation. The event was vibrant, lively and thought provoking and brought together key partners that we have developed with communities in Hull over the last three years. It was an enjoyable day and a fitting end to the placement. Many thanks to our placement providers and all the work done by the trainees on some spectacular posters.
