It is presumed therefore that students have made adequate arrangements for attending all teaching-learning sessions (including lecture attendance/listening). Due to the experiential nature of this unit, students will be required to participate in 80% of all tutorials and lectures, complete readings and share their personal knowledge and expertise. These participation requirements are necessary in order to achieve the assessable skills component of this unit. Lecture notes will be available on UC learn.

It is intended that learning in this unit will be interactive and practical. It is presumed therefore that students have made adequate arrangements for attending all teaching-learning sessions (including lecture attendance/listening). Please note that satisfactory participation in tutorials is part of assessment (refer to Assignment 3a).
The emphasis in this unit is on collaborative learning in which we act as learning resources for each other. In order for this to occur, attendance at, and active participation in the tutorials is necessary. Absence from more than two tutorials will limit a student's ability to engage in the required discourses and discussions to meet the learning outcomes. Students will benefit by doing some private study to make-up the missed work on the relevant readings, activities and analyses missed on that day.
Participation in such a skills based interactive and practical counselling unit means:
- demonstration of preparation for the session through reading and critical thinking;
- willingness to share ideas, resources and facilitate others learning;
- active participation in practical exercises, role-plays, simulations, etc;
- constructive interaction with group members through honest disclosures and respectful listening; and
- readiness to adopt and justify a reasoned personal position on issues that arise.
Required IT skills
Students are expected to have or to develop the information communication technology skills necessary to submit competently word-processed assignments and access relevant web sites and on-line journal articles. Training opportunities exist within the University to assist students in developing these skills.
Work placement, internships or practicums
