This subject introduces students to the theoretical frameworks used to develop evidence-based treatments in psychology. The first half of the subject focuses on learning interpersonal communication and interview skills in situations appropriate to psychological practice and research. The second half of the subject focusses on exploring the behavioural procedures used to create positive change in client functioning. Students learn about the major theoretical frameworks and empirical findings used to conceptualise and understand client difficulties and treatments. Students are taught a number of techniques used to clarify the effects of difficult behaviours on client well being. This subject provides students with a basis for developing the theory-driven practical skills needed for effective psychological practice.
