Service-Learning Clinical Experience at Connecticut Valley Hospital


BIOL 131
Spring 2012 not offered
Crosslisting: PSYC 131
Certificates: Civic Engagement
Course Cluster: Service-Learning

This service-learning course in the life sciences is open to sophomores interested in careers in the health professions by permission of instructor (POI). Learning and experience will come from civic engagement at Connecticut Valley Hospital (CVH).

Students will be introduced to the psychiatric rehabilitation plan that is patterned after the Psychiatric Rehab Consultants (PRC) program of Dr. Robert Liberman, MD, of UCLA.

Students will be trained to administer the diagnostics tool developed by PRC called clients' assessment of strengths, interests, and goals (CASIG). Then each student will administer the CASIG to one or more CVH patients. The results of the CASIG will be reported to the patient's treatment team.

In following years, students may volunteer at CVH and assist the same patient(s) in achieving the goals that were identified in the CASIG. CVH will offer skills training to increase strengths in the patients. The students can assist in this endeavor and observe the results of the recovery effort of the patient and the staff. This would constitute an extended clinical experience for Wesleyan students.
