  • Objectives


    It is intended that students acquire clinical skills in the area of Neuropsychology. The acquisition of these competences will be carried out in the first phase by observing the practice of the internship supervisors in place and under the supervision of the teachers of this CU. In a second phase, the students will be involved in a supervised practice, essentially of neuropsychological assessment activities, where they will be able to put into practice the knowledge acquired during the training process. Students will also be involved in neuropsychological intervention activities, such as cognitive stimulation or the neuropsychological rehabilitation, depending on the context of the academic stage. The tasks performed under supervision should be specific acts of Psychology and be appropriate to the objectives and mission of the institution where they are developed.

In the next phase of the CU will be developed the roleplaying training of the main communication skills in the context of internship. Next, the specific training will be developed in situations related to the different intervention contexts in Neuropsychology, where the discussion of clinical cases will be privileged.
