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:

critically analyse and deconstruct behaviour change theory and its application within mental health contexts

evaluate and critique, biological, psychological, social, neurophysiological and systematic factors that impact on behaviour and behaviour change in mental health contexts

formulate effective individual and systemic responses to facilitate behaviour change founded on theory, empirical research and recovery principles

apply motivational interviewing knowledge and strategies to facilitate co-constructed constructive consumer behaviour change
