Learning outcomes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:

conceptualise counselling as a client-centred, relationally-oriented and recovery-focused process

co-create and sustain a therapeutic alliance demonstrating an emerging capacity for empathy, positive regard and a non-judgemental stance

apply a range of foundational counselling skills within counselling sessions

reflect on the process of counselling, including their own professional practice
