DIVERSITY: RELATIONSHIPS, GENDER AND SEXUALITY
Credit points: 15
In this subject students examine a range of issues related to the formation, maintenance and dissolution of human relationships. Students explore topics including psychosocial development, influences on constructions of gender and sexual identity, violence in relationships. Related matters of sexual and reproductive health are examined along with public health policy responses. Students will gain accreditation to use the Protective Behaviours program (including mandatory reporting) accredited by the Child Protection Society which is relevant not only to a range of vocations involving children and young adults but to the personal development of the students themselves.
