This course focuses on discipline knowledge and professional and interpersonal competencies required of students in relation to supervised practice in both mental health-specific and more general settings. Students will examine the assumptions, values and social/interpersonal skills that they bring into their professional practice. Building on these, students will develop their professional knowledge and interpersonal/professional competencies, including initial interviewing, developing a therapeutic alliance, and monitoring client outcomes. There is a focus on skill acquisition within the contexts of diversity and cultural competency and professional ethics. Learning opportunities include compulsory day-long workshops on-campus which integrate role-play practice and ethical decision-making, video-based self-reflective learning and feedback, and research and theoretical reviews.
