PSYC 422 - BEHAVIOR THERAPY FIELDWORK
Students spend the equivalent of one-day-per-week over the course of the semester working in a mental health agency or program that employs behavior therapy techniques, e.g., a school, a program for children diagnosed with a learning disability or hyperactivity, a facility for people diagnosed with mental retardation, an in-home or school program for individuals diagnosed with autism or Asperger's Syndrome, a residence for emotionally disturbed or mentally retarded adults or children. As most mental health services agencies tend to be open during the hours of 9am to 3:30pm, students should leave one day free in their schedules to accommodate fieldwork placement. Like all fieldwork courses, this course requires a substantial term paper based on library research from the professional journals that is integrated with the practicum experience. In addition to the practicum hours, students meet in class to process the internship experience and other course assignments. Due to obligations to community agencies and their clients, admission to fieldwork placements is at the discretion of the psychology faculty. Fulfills Category 6 and fieldwork requirements. Fieldwork Insurance Fee.
