Fieldwork in Mental Health
This course offers students a hands-on introduction to the field of clinical psychology. Students will attend a three hour weekly seminar focusing on topics relevant to working in mental health settings (e.g., ethical considerations, professional development, approaches to assessment and treatment of mental health difficulties). Students will also be required to dedicate six hours a week to working in Queens College Psychological Center (QCPC), a mental health clinic located on the Queens College campus. Students will take an active role in the day to day functioning of QCPC. Their contributions will include administrative tasks, childcare provision, psychoeducation and community outreach projects. Students will have the opportunity to interact directly with QCPC clients. Those interested in pursuing graduate studies in mental health are encouraged to enroll. 135 hours: 3 credits
Prereqs: PSYCH 221 and permission of instructor
Instructor permission required for enrollment. Please, contact Valentina Nikulina, Ph.D. (email@example.com) for application procedures.
There are new requirements which are effective for all Psychology majors who entered QC starting Fall 2013. The new requirement specifies a minimum grade of C in Psych 101, 107, 213W, and Advanced Lab courses even if the courses were transferred to QC.
A minimum grade of C- is required for all other Psychology electives. The major also requires that you complete two 300-level courses (in addition to the Advanced Lab course).
These grade requirements also apply to grades from ALL transferred Psychology courses. For example, if you received transfer credit for Psych 101 taken elsewhere with a C- or less, you will NOT receive credit toward the Psychology major or minor. You would need to repeat the course at QC to meet the minimum grade requirement. Ignoring this requirement can have serious consequences that may keep you from graduating.
