It will consider research and theory relevant to health and lifestyle-related behaviour and pain management. A range of health attitudes, assessment methods and interventions will be reviewed, and students will use several of these methods in practice sessions-including theory and application with specific groups (e.g., ethnicity, Australian Indigenous clients). Attendance at the on-campus workshops/residential schools and 13 hours of online workshops are mandatory.
