Why PREP?

By design, PREP addresses common gaps in masters training options to produce highly skilled and confident therapists.

 

We've done this by drawing more than a century of experience across our senior team to develop comprehensive and balanced preparation for a career in clinical psychology.

PREP has been a great opportunity for me to expand my knowledge and expertise.

 

The regular CPD and supervision sessions have been invaluable in helping me meet the requirements for my clinical endorsement, as well as further my knowledge after university.

How PREP Differs

PREP coursework isn’t delivered traditional subjects ‘blocks’ of treatment modalities or disorders. Rather, PREP integrates theory and process in a combination of online self-paced content and small, live, practical CPD sessions enriched with the experience and support of trainers and fellow registrars.

 

Meanwhile, PREP supervision sessions support the development of practical skill-building that helps students to master the detailed interactions required for the effective application of evidence-based therapies in response to a client’s needs.

Comprehensive

PREP covers all clinical registrar training requirements for the Psychology Board of Australia’s endorsement. 

This provides clarity for registrars, consistent high-quality learning opportunities and leaves no gaps or blind spots in preparation for clinical psychology practice. 

Experience-Rich

Our workshops are delivered by a team of senior psychologists

who have experience in clinical psychology, policy development, research, and training. PREP registrars are therefore, exposed to well-rounded perspective and content enriched by the experience of the PREP team.

Pragmatic

While technique and theory matters, which technique and which theory is less important.  

Hence, PREP is transtheoretical, helping registrars understand where theoretical orientations overlap, where they’re distinctly different, and how they may be applied in practice.

Our unique program and workshop format

provides registrars the additional support that comes from learning alongside peers and where feedback is central to honing registrar skills and building confidence.
