PSY1104 Psychological Skills A

Units : 1
Faculty or Section : Faculty of Sciences
School or Department : Psychology
Version produced : 30 December 2013


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


This course deals with the fundamental issues of research and professional skills. With respect to psychological research skills we start by introducing the language of research by introducing the basic constructs of any research program. We want to ensure that students understand the relationship between theory and its operationalisation through the manipulation and measurement of concrete variables and how hypotheses can be constructed from such considerations. With respect to professional skills development, the foundation of all professional practice is the ethical responsibilities of the professional. This course requires students to be aware of and to be able to apply the APS code of ethics to professional issues. Finally, students' introduction to Work Integrated Learning will commence with examining their career development.
