Rehabilitation Counselling II - REHB5921

Year - 2020

The unit of study builds upon work done in REHB5911, extending individualised counselling into the community and group counselling contexts. Students revisit and refine Micro-skills development specifically in group settings. Group and family variations of applied counselling theory are explored. Specific practical counselling situations involving problem solving, communication, conflict resolution, motivation, stress and coping, etc will provide the context for developing clinical reasoning skills and advancing practice in evidence-based group facilitation techniques. The student reflects upon experience in counselling education in the creation of a personal statement of practice, a toolbox of skills upon which to practice, and a plan for the initial next steps in life long professional learning.
