The unit is designed to provide theoretical frameworks and skills acquisition in interviewing and intervention strategies. Material will focus on the major therapies employed by practicing psychologists and the most appropriate situations in which to use the various strategies. Consideration will also be given to the effectiveness of the various approaches. Although there will be an emphasis on cognitive behavioural approaches to therapy, other therapies will be considered, including for example, humanistic approaches, motivational interviewing and solution focused approaches, behaviour therapy, mindfulness, narrative therapy, interpersonal therapy, psychodynamic therapy, group work and the integrative approach. Opportunities to develop skills in CBT will occur through role play with class members, individual feedback, and the observation of practice sessions via a one-way mirror.
Examination (2 hours) 50%, written assignment (3000 words) 50%
