This unit allows students the opportunity to learn about the profession of school psychology as part of the teaching program. The unit focuses on working as a school counsellor under the supervision of university staff, who are all registered psychologists, and experienced field school counsellors. The role of the school counsellor includes counselling and assessing children and adolescents with difficulties, and developing intervention programs for those children with learning and behavioural challenges, liaising with parents and teachers to enhance the classroom and home learning and psychological environments, and developing prevention programs for at risk students.
