CLIP is a 5-week online course with a final assignment. (Aside from the final assignment, there is no homework.) Each week, we meet for two hours. Most class time is spent in small group practice sessions in which participants learn the basics of good clinical interviewing—Lectica style. Along the way, you'll be confronted with a range of interview challenges and work other participants to explore solutions.

In these classes, participants will engage in role-play to build CLI skills.
In these classes, you’ll play the interviewer as we model 10 challenges that can affect the quality of interview responses. Then, you'll work with group members to develop and implement strategies for managing these challenges.
For the final assignment, each participant will conduct and record a minimum of one interview and write a detailed self-critique. The interview will also be reviewed by your instructor, who will provide detailed comments and suggestions and determine if you have achieved an adequate level of skill for certification. If the instructor decides that you need additional practice, you may be asked to conduct a second interview as part of the certification process.
