Psychology Board of Australia states that case reports are an educational and developmental tool, designed to assist the provisional psychologist to develop relevant competencies. Case reports document the provisional psychologist’s ability to comprehensively assess clients and provide appropriate interventions within recognised psychological frameworks.
Under the current 4+2 guidelines, interns must complete eight case reports and submit four of these to the Board (two assessment focused and two intervention focused).
Under the current 5+1 guidelines, interns must complete at least two assessment and two intervention case reports during the internship.

Case Report Review
Do you need a Board Approved Supervisor to provide written review of your case report?
Provisional Psychologist Hub can provide supervision, feedback and guidance in the review of case reports. However, case reports are assessed by the Psychology Board of Australia. We are unable to guarantee a satisfactory outcome as the board assesses each case report and it is at the individual marker's discretion as to the outcome of each case report.
We have supervisors who can review your case report and provide written feedback to consider before submitting to the Psychology Board of Australia. Case reports document the provisional psychologist’s ability to comprehensively assess clients, and provide appropriate interventions within a recognised psychological framework. We recommend before submitting your review that you use both your supervision and professional development to guide your approach to minimise the number of reviews you need to undertake. The supervisor must be satisfied that a case report meets all the criteria before it is submitted to the Board.
Each review is considered indirect supervision and when completed by our Board Approved Supervisors can be logged toward your supervision ratio.
