We are pleased to announce the launch of the new Behavioural Health discipline within the College of Medicine and Public Health. Our new name and our new focus brings together our Chronic Condition Management (CCM) and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) expertise.
Behavioural Health courses provide graduates with contemporary socio-ecological perspectives informing the relationship between behaviours and health. The cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) program provides you with clinical competencies and research skills in CBT for high-prevalence psychological disorders.
You will gain clinical training opportunities through industry practicums modelled around a clinical supervision framework.
Competency-based assessment programs, seminars and workshops are delivered by respected and recognised clinical and research academics, and guest lecturers who are experts in CBT. You will have opportunities to translate knowledge of high-prevalence psychological disorders, comorbid mental health and related disorders, resilience and strengths-based interventions, as well as behavioural activation and motivational interviewing in an applied interdisciplinary learning environment.
This course is suited to new allied health graduates and health professionals who are committed to ongoing professional development and personal growth using accountable evidence-based treatments and practice principles. They are suitable preparation for those interested in pursuing private practice, or advancing their knowledge and skills in CBT. Collectively, our Behavioural Health courses offer developing, expanding and advanced levels of qualification through an integrated program of theory, clinical practicums and research.
Alternatively, our Behavioural Health Counselling courses are also available within the Behavioural Health discipline.
