Required Reading (both are available online in the UC Library):
American Psychiatric Association. (2022). Diagnostic and statistical manual of mental disorders: DSM-5-TR (5th ed.Text Revision). Author.

There will also be additional required reading listed on the unit Canvas site, which will consist of key articles or additional chapters related to the specific lecture/workshop content. You are strongly encouraged to read these additional assigned readings before the class in which they will be covered.
It is expected that all students will attend all lectures/workshops and this unit is delivered in face-to-face mode. Students should familiarise themselves with attendance rules in the Master of Clinical Psychology course. Please note that all lectures/workshops in this unit require mandatory attendance. Students cannot miss any lectures/workshops, and if they are absent will receive a fail grade for the unit or should consider a late withdrawal if there are extenuating circumstances. If a student has appropriate documentation supporting an absence under exceptional circumstances on the day of a mandatory lecture/workshop, students may be given the option to attend the workshop online or when it is next delivered in the course (and receive a WHE grade until such time if approved by the ADE and meeting all other pass requirements for the unit) or complete an equivalent workshop approved by the unit convenor at the student's own expense (please note documentation will be required as proof of completion). Students should also note that absences may impact course progression.
