PSY700 Advanced and Transcultural Counselling


The USC postgraduate psychology programs are committed to maintaining the primacy of public safety in the delivery of the program within the education and placement environments. This subject employs a skills-training approach to extend your previous learning in counselling psychology, with an emphasis on strengthening effective psychotherapy skills, and a focus on the development of an effective working alliance with patients. You are also introduced to the importance of cultural factors within a biopsychosocial model, the need to develop cultural sensitivity and awareness and skills for delivering effective transcultural therapy, with a special focus on working with indigenous Australians and refugees. Ethical issues will be addressed as they arise.
