Course Description : This course builds on the knowledge that students obtained in previous PSR courses, including basic information about severe mental illness, program models, communication techniques and group skills. The course enables students to identify and begin to practice common interventions used in psychiatric rehabilitation settings. Classroom lectures, as well as topical and informal discussions will provide students with the opportunity to integrate theory with the practical experience gained at their field placements. In addition to attending a three hour seminar style class, students will spend 240 hours interning at a psychosocial rehabilitation program.
