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:

identify risk factors for the formation and maintenance of commonly diagnosed mental health diagnoses in adults, including risk of self-harm and differences in presentation in older adults

demonstrate standardised psychological test administration and interpretation based on psychometric principles and the needs of the client

demonstrate critical reasoning, reflective practice, ethical judgment and cultural sensitivity in forming diagnoses and case formulation for those with mental health diagnoses

demonstrate the ability to communicate the results of assessments and case formulations in writing and verbally to clients, families, health professionals and other stakeholders
