Not currently offered
Credit points: 15
In this subject students are introduced to the interpersonal process approaches in the conduct of psychotherapy and counselling. Through the framework provided by interpersonal approaches students will gain knowledge of the core elements involved in working effectively as professional counselling psychologists and will begin to apply this knowledge in simulated practice sessions. These elements (which include but are not limited to: establishing a working alliance; honouring the client's resistance; rolling with resistance; working with ambivalence; responding to painful client feelings) will be introduced through theory, and through demonstration and practice (eg role plays; viewing audio-visual demonstrations; video and audio recording of student practice sessions). In addition, this subject is grounded in the research literature on psychotherapy outcomes and a conceptualising of the problems and dilemmas of (modern) living in the 21st century.
