MENTAL HEALTH AND REHABILITATION
Credit points: 15
Approximately one-third of all individuals reporting somatic complaints also have anxiety disorder and / or depression. Thus, many people presenting to health practitioners will also have mental health conditions. One aim of this subject is for students to be able to identify mental health conditions, and some core principles of working with people with such conditions. People presenting for assistance in rehabilitation settings also frequently present in a state of distress - for instance, persistent pain, anger, anxiety, and shame - which can have a substantial impact on how well such people progress. It's therefore important for students to have a thorough knowledge of these states, how they can impact on a person's behaviour, and core principles of working with people in such states. As well, students will be asked to apply these principles in analysing how to tailor their approach when working with people with these conditions.
