'Intervention' to change human behaviour underpins much of the professional application of psychology. Psychologists employ a wide variety of strategies to facilitate behaviour change, and implement these intervention strategies across a range of levels. This course will provide information on how theory informs practice across a number of approaches to therapy. Examples of how these approaches need to be tailored to different levels of intervention (eg. individual vs couples and families) and particular groups (eg. children vs elderly).
|Objectives||This course will:
1. Introduce students to concepts and principles involved in designing and delivering different intervention strategies.
2. Introduce students to concepts and principles involved in using some common counselling approaches.
3. Illustrate the application of intervention strategies through presentation and discussion of 'case study' material.
|Content||Content areas are: intervention strategies (individual, couple, family/group); and counselling approaches in therapeutic interactions. The content will be covered through lectures, guest lectures and tutorials. Supervision and evaluation will be provided by staff in the School of Psychology and tutoring staff.|
