4 OVERVIEW Widener University's Law-Psychology Graduate Program leads to the awarding of the Doctor of Psychology (Psy.D.) degree by the Institute for Graduate Clinical Psychology and the Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree by the School of Law. The Psy.D. portion of the program and its captive internship are fully accredited by the American Psychological Association. The J.D. portion of the program is fully accredited by the American Bar Association. Goals And Benefits This program is based on the idea that many legal issues involve underlying psychological questions. Typically, lawyers and psychologists are trained to examine "psycholegal" issues from separate perspectives. This program trains lawyer-clinical psychologists to combine their knowledge of both fields. By integrating the two fields, our graduates are trained to bring fresh insights to the process of understanding, evaluating and correcting important societal problems. Students develop special expertise on a wide range of issues at the interface of law and psychology. The topics of study include: civil and criminal mental health law issues involving adults and children, disability, divorce and child custody, health insurance, education and special education, personal injury, professional licensing, malpractice, etc. Graduates are prepared to play such diverse roles in society as administrator, consultant, forensic psychologist, judge, lawyer, legislator, policy maker, professor, etc. They are trained to add new dimensions to these traditional roles by using their joint areas of expertise in an integrated fashion, bringing to bear their knowledge of the most advanced types of specialized psycholegal assessments, treatments, research findings and social interventions. The program offers several benefits. First and foremost, our interdisciplinary training helps graduates integrate the two fields conceptually and apply their special expertise to real-world problems. In addition, this program offers graduates a significant way to distinguish themselves in the job market and to expand their career choices. When compared to the option of seeking both degrees separately, the program is shorter and saves students the equivalent of two years of tuition and time. General Requirements During the six years that it takes students to graduate from this program, they complete a minimum of 96 credits towards the Psy.D. degree and 76 credits towards the J.D. degree. A large portion of the curriculum is similar to that required of all students in the Psy.D. and J.D. degree programs. That is, students complete almost of all of the required courses in each degree program, but have fewer elective courses. In addition, they complete several courses that are designed to help students integrate the fields of psychology and law and develop specialized knowledge and skills. They are also provided with opportunities to apply their knowledge and skills through field placements. The training culminates in an integrated law-psychology dissertation. 4

5 During the 1 st year, students take a preselected set of courses at the Institute for Graduate Clinical Psychology. In the 2 nd year, students take a preselected set of courses at the School of Law and 2-3 courses at the Institute for Clinical Psychology. Starting in the 3 rd year, the curriculum is more evenly divided between law courses and psychology courses, and students have more freedom in scheduling their own coursework in such a way as to complete all requirements. During the 1 st and 3 rd years of the program, students take part in a two-day per week clinical psychology field practicum. They are expected to get a part-time job in the field of law during the 4 th year, and they are placed in three-day per week psychology internship rotations during their 5 th and 6 th years. Students start working on their law-psychology dissertations in the second half of their 4 th year and are expected to complete them by the end of their 5 th year or in the second half of their 6 th (final) year. At the beginning of the 4 th summer of the program, there is a qualifying comprehensive examination that covers many of the courses taken up to that point in the psychology curriculum. Having successfully completed the comprehensive examination in psychology, students earn a Masters degree in psychology. In the first half of their 6 th year, students take a Final Clinical (Psychology) Oral Examination in which they present and defend two work samples, one for an intervention case and the other for an assessment case. The majority of students graduate in May of their 6 th year. 5

6 CURRICULUM Introduction The prescribed curriculum is detailed in the following pages. Because the psychology and law curriculums are updated annually, as some courses are dropped and new ones are added, the following tables may not reflect such changes until the next edition of this document. Students are responsible for keeping informed of curriculum changes outlined in other documents and for meeting all relevant requirements published by the Institute for Graduate Clinical Psychology and School of Law. The tables and charts provided below are designed to help students distribute their credits between the Institute and the School of Law in a manner that best assures graduation from both disciplines at the end of the 6 th year. Where the schedule allows, students are encouraged to take advantage of elective course offerings at both the School of Law and the Institute, through which they can obtain further specialization (e.g., health law, school psychology). However, Widener University does not guarantee that such specialty elective courses will be scheduled in such a way as to allow for J.D.- Psy.D. students to be able to fit them within the Law-Psychology Program s credit requirements. Most of the courses shown below are required, but the order in which many of them are taken can be determined by students. Some required courses may be replaced by other courses to meet individual needs. Because of the complexities involved in completing all requirements, proposed deviations from the prescribed curriculum must be approved by the Director of the Law-Psychology Program, and they must conform to the policies of the Institute and the School of Law, as well as various accreditation criteria. Summer Courses Option Although the curriculum shown below can be completed without taking summer courses, doing so is highly recommended to assure a more manageable course load during the 5 th and 6 th years of the program, when students are expected to devote a significant amount of time and energy to their dissertations and internship rotations. For example, it is suggested that students take up to a total of 8 law credits between the 2 nd and 4 th summer sessions of the program. In addition, it is possible to take dissertation credits during the summers of the last two years of the program. One summer dissertation course (up to 3 credits ), either at the end of the 4 th or 5 th year of the program is offered free of tuition for all Psy.D. students; this gives students free access to dissertation committee members during one summer and helps them complete their dissertations on time. Registration for these special credits must be done through the central office of the Institute for Graduate Clinical Psychology. Please note, however, that these free dissertation credits do not count toward the minimum number of psychology credits (96) required of J.D.-Psy.D. students. Maximum Credits Rules The maximum number of credits that can be taken during any Fall or Spring semester is 16, and during any Summer is 6 (2-4 credits is recommended). Up to a total of 8 summer law credits are allowed, but they need to be taken in a way that does not run afoul of the following: (1) Summer credits cannot be taken in place of taking any credits during a regular academic year. That is, at least 3 credits must be taken on each campus during each academic semester of years II through VI; 6

7 (2) Students need to conform to current total minimal credit requirements during each regular academic semester to qualify for financial aid. Falling below a minimum number of credits during a regular academic semester may make a student ineligible for financial aid or may trigger the necessity to make loan payments. For more details on these requirements, check with the Financial Aid Office at the School of Law.

12 Required Law-Psychology Courses The following is a description of courses taught at the Institute that help students integrate law and psychology and develop specialized skills: 735: Introduction to Law-Psychology (3cr) - This seminar presents a survey of the literature within the law-psychology interface. Its purpose is to give students an overview of the wide variety of legal issues to which various subfields of psychology (e.g., experimental, social, clinical) have been applied. Students are taught to understand how the two disciplines can be integrated into a specialized field of study and practice. 511: Legal Rights of Patients and Clients (3cr) - This course is designed to examine the laws that apply to various types of patients and clients that psychologists are likely to have. Emphasis is placed on how psychological knowledge can be used to evaluate the goals, behavioral assumptions and efficacy of existing laws. The course is intended to help students improve their delivery of services and become informed advocates for progressive change. 533: Professional Issues and Ethics (3cr) - This course is designed to introduce the student to the laws and professional standards that regulate the practice of psychology. Discussion topics include: licensing and certification, ethical and professional standards, health insurance, malpractice liability. 736: Psycholegal Assessment, Diagnosis and Testimony (3cr) -The purpose of this seminar is to provide training in the special skills and knowledge clinical psychologists must have when delivering diagnostic services in legal or legally-mandated contexts. Topics relate to a variety of populations (e.g., prisoners, divorced couples, children) and settings (e.g., courtrooms, prisons, hospitals, schools). This course is offered once every two years in the Spring. 740: Psycholegal Intervention and Treatment (3cr) - The purpose of this seminar is to provide training in the special skills and knowledge clinical psychologists must have when delivering various forms of treatments in legal or legally-mandated contexts. In addition, it covers the knowledge and skills required to deliver other types of interventions in the legal context, such as consulting services to legal entities involved in improving a wide range of public policies. Topics relate to a variety of populations, including: prisoners, civil litigants, families, patients, students, retirees, the disabled, etc. This course is offered once every two years in the Spring. 12

13 Graduation Alternatives The majority of students graduate from both the School of Law and the Institute of Graduate Clinical Psychology in May of their 6 th year in the program. A significant minority of students, however, graduate in August of their 6 th year. A small proportion of students take longer to graduate from both programs, and in a very small number of instances students drop out of the joint degree program to pursue just the law or psychology degree. May Graduation of 6 th Year - The curriculum for the Law-Psychology Program as described above is based on the expectation that students will graduate in May of their 6 th year in the program. Students are not permitted to earn their joint degrees in less than 6 years. After their 1 st year in the program, students are expected to take credits in both law and in psychology during every semester of every academic year. Summer credits can be used to lessen the load during the regular academic year, but not to eliminate the need to take any courses in either discipline during the regular Fall and Spring semesters, or to graduate any earlier than in May of the 6 th year. August Graduation of 6 th Year - A significant minority of students complete all of their coursework in law and in psychology by the end of the Spring semester of their 6 th year, but are scheduled to take their Final Clinical Oral Examinations or to defend their Dissertations during the following summer months. Under these conditions (completed all but either the Dissertation or the Final Clinical Oral Examination and expected to complete the one remaining requirement during the upcoming summer), students are permitted to participate in the May Graduation Ceremonies of the Institute for Graduate Clinical Psychology and the School of Law (not the larger ceremony of Widener University). Such students are NOT granted either degree until all requirements are completed. Most often, their official graduation date becomes August of their 6 th year. Graduation Date Beyond the 6 th Year - A small number of students take more than 6 years to complete the Law-Psychology Program, but they are required to take no more than two additional years. Those who wish to take more than eight years to complete the program must file a petition for permission to do so. Each case is reviewed individually and the Law-Psychology Program is under no obligation to grant such requests. Requests to Pursue Separate Degrees - It occurs infrequently, but a very few students either drop out of the joint-degree program altogether or ask to pursue just one degree separately. Students wishing to complete their training in either law or psychology may petition either the School of Law or the Institute for permission. Each case will be reviewed individually. The minimum number of credits required under the guidelines of the Law-Psychology Program will no longer apply. The School of Law may allow up to 6 credits in psychology to be applied toward the 88 required of all law students. The Institute may allow up to 9 credits in law to be applied toward the 120 required of all psychology students. However, the exact number of credits in one discipline that are applied toward the other discipline will be decided on a case-by-case basis. 13

14 PRACTICUM AND INTERNSHIP For more details on the Practicum and Internship requirements, please read Guidelines For Internship and Practicum Training. This document is available at main office of Institute for Graduate Clinical Psychology and online. What follows is a brief summary of the requirements, as they apply to J.D.-Psy.D. students. Practicum Law-psychology students must complete the equivalent of two years of clinical psychology practicum training. Half of this requirement is completed by attending a two-day-per-week practicum during the 1 st year of training. The second half of this requirement is met by attending a two-day-per-week practicum during the 3 rd year. Like all Psy.D. students, J.D./Psy.D. students must complete the following minimum goals prior to entering an internship rotation: 1. Six (6) psychological batteries with written reports. 2. Two (2) long-term therapy cases of at least six months duration. Because J.D./Psy.D. students complete only two years of practicum training, instead of the usual three for Psy.D. students, meeting these requirements takes good time management. Note that J.D./Psy.D. students are required to meet these goals before their 5 th year, and not necessarily at the end of their 5 th year. Thus, if their practica do not provide ample opportunity, students may complete their requirements by picking up a limited number of cases during their 4 th year through Widener s own Psychological Services Center. Internship During their 5 th and 6 th years, students in the law-psychology program attend two rotations of the APA approved, part-time, captive internship required of all Psy.D. students at the Institute. Students are encouraged to expose themselves to a breadth of experiences, including several that allow them to practice their special skills as lawyers and psychologists. They receive a stipend for their services. 14

16 QUALIFYING EXAMINATION This section describes important guidelines for law-psychology students regarding the qualifying examination in psychology. However, these only supplement and do not replace the guidelines that apply to all Psy.D. students. Thus, please also read the Guidelines For The Qualifying Examination, which is available at the main office of the Institute for Graduate Clinical Psychology and online. The qualifying examination is administered to 4 th year J.D./Psy.D. students (and 3 rd year Psy.D. students) by the Institute of Graduate Clinical Psychology in early June of each year. As illustrated on the next page, 5 areas of psychological content are covered by the examination and each area is based on a specific set of required courses. The examination consists of essay questions that test the student's knowledge of facts learned through coursework, as well as his or her ability to integrate those facts and communicate them in written form. Since the curriculum at the Institute changes from time to time, the table on the next page should be used only as a general planning guide, as it may not be totally up-to-date and accurate. Memoranda are posted at the beginning of the Spring semester of each year, giving students guidelines on the contents of each upcoming examination. Thus, law-psychology students who are about to take the comprehensive examination (usually in their 4 th year of study) must check the memoranda that are published in the Spring of each year, to confirm the exact courses on which their examination is to be based. Generally, the examinations that J.D./Psy.D. students receive will be identical in content to the ones given to all Psy.D. students. Occasionally, some J.D.-Psy.D. students may find that they have not taken all of the courses on which the examination will be based. Such discrepancies can occur when law-psychology students are not able to fit in a required course into their schedules until their 5 th or 6 th years. Once a lawpsychology student identifies any such discrepancies, he or she must alert the Director of the Law- Psychology Program of them in writing by April 1, so that appropriate adjustments can be made. By May 1, students will be sent a notice regarding the adjustments and how they should affect preparations. Generally speaking, questions based on courses that students have not taken will be replaced with substitutes that are based on other courses that students have taken (e.g., lawpsychology courses). 16
