Psychological assessment and supervised practice are integral part of training in both Educational Psychology and Counselling Psychology in order to achieve academic excellence. Establishment of a psychological testing and a counselling laboratory is pertinent to meet the requirement of ethical and standard scientific practice within next ten years.
Both the courses are heavily dependent on education gained through practicum on the field. So besides classroom teaching, practical experience in service delivery is also extremely important. Currently this requirement is met only through external placement in the field. This limits the scope of departmental supervision. In order to maximize the quality of clinical supervision it is essential to have a psychological service unit of its own by approaching 25 years. This will also expand access to psychological service to common people and per se Dhaka University will play a vital role in promoting psychological health to ensuring mental health of the society.
