Welcome to Bond University Psychology Clinic
The Clinic operates as part of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences.
The Bond University Psychology Clinic is a private university teaching clinic for provisionally registered psychologists undertaking postgraduate study in clinical or forensic psychology, and functions as a centre for clinical research. The Psychology Clinic has been providing psychological service to the Gold Coast community since 1999.
A psychology teaching clinic is like a medical teaching hospital, with services provided by Provisionally-registered Psychologists who have already completed at least four years of university training in psychology, and who are now enrolled in specialist post-graduate Masters degrees. All students working in the Clinic are Provisionally-registered as Psychologists with the Psychology Board of Australia.
Provisionally-registered Psychologists provide services under the supervision of highly qualified and experienced staff who are usually members of the Australian Psychological Society Colleges of Clinical or Forensic Psychologists. Sometimes Psychologists on staff provide services directly to clients in order to demonstrate aspects of clinical work to Provisionally-registered Psychologists. You will always be advised of the professional status of the person providing services to you.
As this is a teaching clinic, consultations with clients are routinely observed by other Provisionally-registered Psychologists and their supervisors. Consultations are often digitally recorded to be used in peer review with other Provisionally-registered Psychologists, Clinic teaching activities or supervision.
