Students learn how the challenges people face are shaped by the society around us as well as through the internal factors that shape individual behaviour and personality. Students gain an in-depth understanding of individual, family and community practice. Practice skills are informed by a critical appreciation of the nature of contemporary Australian society and the causes of personal and social problems. Both disciplines have an emphasis on integrative theory and reflective approaches to practice. Graduates can apply for further study to become a registered counsellor with the Australian Register of Counsellors and Psychotherapists.
