At the commencement of the unit, students will learn how to modify evidence based interventions such as CBT, for use within younger populations. The unit will then focus on interventions for issues common to this population including behavioural disorders, eating disorders and developmental disorders. A major focus will be on the development of therapy skills through the use of virtual simulation, case based analysis and role play.
