Police Check and Working with Children Check

Prior to commencing a placement, students are required to obtain a police check. The Faculty of Health Work Integrated Learning Team utilised an online service called ‘Fit2Work’, and students will receive an email with instructions on how to apply. Students should not apply for a police check until they have received this email from Fit2Work.

Some organisations may also require students to obtain a Working with Children check if they will be working directly with children or families whilst on placement.

Content

The unit will provide students with an overview of the concepts in measurement in relation to measuring play behaviour and therapeutic change. This knowledge will then be applied to the types of therapeutic assessment that are currently in use such as: criterion, standardised, norm-referenced, and non-standardised. Children’s behaviour through play will be analysed with emphasis on behavioural characteristics when children have a play deficit. How play assessment informs decisions within Child Play Therapy will be viewed from the quality of a child’s play behaviour as well as the themes in a child’s behaviour with reference to a child’s culture.
