MHN5170 Healing and Therapeutics

Units : 1
Faculty or Section : Faculty of Health, Engineering and Sciences
School or Department : School of Health, Nursing and Midwifery


This course builds on the skills developed in MHN5130 Counselling and Group Work, by exploring and practicing a therapeutic modality. While using the ACMHN Standards of Practice for Australian Mental Health Nurses 2010 as a framework for practice, students will develop skills in a therapeutic approach which will enable them to work with clients from across the lifespan and in a range of settings while being aware of the cultural basis of therapeutic strategies and of the need to adapt an inter-cultural approach to clients. Students will be given the opportunity to explore and practice advanced skills in one or more areas of their interest.
