Provisional psychologists are all in their 5th year or 6th year of studies in psychology. They have all completed an undergraduate psychology plus an honours year. Provisional psychologists are all under supervision with a board approved supervisor and engaging in an internship program as regulated by AHPRA. They engage in pertinent learning and professional activities to develop their professional competencies. At 3P, we employ provisional psychologists as this is part of our vision and values to offer training for the psychologists of tomorrow. Our recruitment process is also rigorous and we employ provisional psychologists with significant experience in the field of psychology or connected fields such as mental health clinicians, social care, childcare, education/teachers. We also have a thorough supervision and learning program that all our team engage in. All assessment reports are reviewed and countersign by a board supervisor. The supervisor may also work as a consultant – attending a session and doing joint work. In these situations the registered psychologist fees will apply. Provisional psychologists may also work with a registered psychologist and observe sessions. At 3P, we encourage this rich team collaboration.
