Learners develop deeper knowledge of psychological approaches and models of understanding that influence consumers undertaking constructive change that supports recovery. Learners will critically deconstruct the concepts around behaviour change within the context of their professional discipline. Motivational Interviewing strategies that resonate with co-constructed change between consumer and clinician will underpin the unit.
- Behaviour change as a construct
- Influences of mental health complications on human behaviour
- Neurophysiology and behaviour change
- Motivation and behaviour change
- Motivational Interviewing
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.
