Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject, the focus is on developing appropriate levels of interpersonal helping skills which relate to theoretical material covered in SWP4APA. You are expected to play an active role in group-based learning and develop an awareness of group dynamics and group process. To facilitate interpersonal helping skill development, you will participate in role play exercises. These exercises help you learn to: (i) establish the context of practice, (ii) develop an effective working alliance, (iii) identify the client's perspective, (iv) develop a sense of the client's strengths and issues, and (v) set a direction for future work. Central to the subject is the development of critical awareness of self, including your style as a worker.
