Graduate Certificate in Applied Support Work

The Graduate Certificate in Applied Support Work is for those looking for an introduction to the evidence-based application of psychological principles relevant to a support worker. It is designed for people working, or intending to work, in a broad range of allied health fields including community work, aged care, social care and health settings. It will equip you with knowledge and skills in the areas of motivation and emotions and the principles of behaviour change, as well as introducing you to the fundamentals of abnormal psychology and the basics of therapeutic communication skills with people in distress. Together, these elements combine to provide current and aspiring support workers with a psychological basis for understanding and improving their work practice.
