This module aims to develop the student's capacity to work effectively and ethically as a psychodynamic practitioner on placement, using the learning from the rest of the course. As such it is at the core of the course, showing the student's developing professional identity and counselling skill. The student will work with approximately 3 clients each week, receiving weekly supervision (as a minimum) from an external supervisor. A report and pass or fail grade will be provided by the supervisor, but in addition the learning from the module will be assessed by means of a detailed learning journey report.

* To develop further a professional approach to practice
* To develop further the ability to make thoughtful use of supervision
* To develop further the skills and techniques used in professional psychodynamic practice
