Pre-requisite: Students must be enrolled in the following Program: BPSH


In PSY1105 students will continue their preparation in psychological research and professional skills. With respect to psychological research skills, the course applies the observational skills examined in Semester 1 to the experimental domain. As such, students will be required to run an experiment, test participants, record results, and score and analyse obtained data. With respect to the professional skills component, the course will introduce students to foundation intervention skills and models for therapeutic formulation and intervention. Students will be required to develop skills for thinking about issues that affect people, and to frame these within evidence based approaches to psychological interventions. Questioning styles based on a range of therapeutic modalities will also be introduced to develop students' awareness of the technical skills required to stimulate individual change.
