PHE2CPR

2019

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject students will be given the opportunity to increase their knowledge, understanding and skills in communicating in interpersonal and group settings. The principal aim of this subject is to identify the existing interpersonal skills of students and provide an opportunity for their development and consolidation when applied in health and public health settings. Given that the subject adopts a skills-based orientation, the primary component is a three-hour seminar which will provide students with a forum for building and developing effective communication styles, appreciating contextual considerations (eg. culture), and developing an understanding of the application of interpersonal communication skills in a range of settings (eg. therapeutic, social, and public health). The seminar is supported by 'one' one-hour lecture.
