Intervention Skills in Psychology Practice 2 PSY707

Introduction

This unit introduces students to the practice of self-reflection. This will involve application of psychological intervention skills to the self and others.

Content will address key theoretical models and evidence-based treatments for specific adult psychological presentations/disorders, and classroom discussion and exercises will provide an opportunity to develop key psychological intervention skills.

Where appropriate, sessions will be supplemented with audio-visual material and handouts, and students should be prepared to role-play elements of the key therapy skills when discussed.
