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.
