About this Unit
In this unit students acquire basic counselling and intervention skills, and familiarity with the ethical, legal, and professional aspects of psychological practice. The theoretical underpinnings of evidence-based intervention strategies and ethical practice are critically examined, and students develop their professional understanding of the codes and guidelines of the Australian Psychological Society and Psychology Board of Australia, and the relevant State and Commonwealth Acts and Regulations of Parliament. Major practice problems faced by psychologists and modes of resolution acceptable within the profession are considered.
