MHN3110 Counselling Skills for Health Professionals

Units : 1
Faculty or Section : Faculty of Sciences
School or Department : Nursing and Midwifery


The content of the course is based on the premise that there are two people in a helping relationship: the nurse and the client. The better understanding nurses have of themselves, the better they are able to help others to work on their personal difficulties. Students will have the opportunity to develop their own self awareness through reflective practice for the purpose of lifelong professional development. Students will also explore a range of theoretical concepts underpinning counselling practice aimed at facilitating micro-skill development in a variety of nursing practise situations.
