Content

This unit is designed to provide the theoretical and practical framework for the major evidence-based psychotherapeutic approach broadly defined as cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) and related therapies. The unit is focused on skill acquisition in intervention practice and management of therapeutic/clinical process. The emphasis is on facilitation of practical skill development in terms of content and process, with specific reference to the treatment of anxiety and mood disorders. Such knowledge and skills lay the foundation for an array of more specific psychotherapies and techniques that will be taught throughout the course, particularly in the units Psychological Intervention 2 and 3. Additionally, the unit will enable students to develop an appreciation of the 'common factors' fundamental to outcome in all psychotherapeutic approaches as well as learn about the fundamental question of 'what works for whom?' Opportunities to develop skills will occur through demonstration, observation, practical rehearsal (roleplay) and individualised feedback. The course will be structured into two parts: a class and seminar (roleplay) component.

Assessment

Assessment task 1: Role-play skill demonstration 30%
