Goal 2: Students will demonstrate competency in their ability to research and evaluate clinical questions by the application of the scientific method, when applicable; by contributing to the existing and evolving body of knowledge and research methods in professional psychology; and by critically evaluating the current body of knowledge in professional psychology that serves as a foundation for practice. Goal 3: Students will demonstrate fundamental competencies in assessment through effective evaluation and conceptualization of all relevant dimensions of their clients with an emphasis on the use of the most appropriate assessment techniques and understanding of psychopathology, and accurately communicate their findings in a professional manner. Goal 4: Students will demonstrate fundamental competencies in establishing and maintaining effective and ethical collegial and client relationships in professional settings. Goal 5: Students will demonstrate basic intervention competencies by applying appropriate and efficacious therapeutic interventions according to a theoretical and methodological orientation, an assessment of client intervention needs, and by demonstrating the capacity to self observe and self critique the outcomes of their interventions. Goal 6: Students will demonstrate basic competency in practice with clients from diverse backgrounds by appreciating human diversity and integrating that appreciation into the selection, application and interpretation of their psychological assessment techniques and intervention. Goal 7: Students will demonstrate competency in the areas of supervision and consultation by evaluating, selecting, and applying effective consultation and supervision models to practice. Course Objectives: 1. Understand the measurement of sleep-wake functioning using both behavioral and physiological techniques. 2.
