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 psychology and psychotherapy, 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 therapeutic work, 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. There will be an emphasis on PTSD and metacognitive therapy. Ethical issues will be addressed as they arise.
