They will develop intervention plans that promote collaborative care planning and evidence-based treatment, including models of support for people using e-therapy. As a study focus, this elective unit examines the core principles of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Motivational Interviewing (MI) within recovery-oriented mental health care, and explores key adaptations required for individuals across life stages. It will enhance the students’ knowledge and skills in the application of CBT and MI to enhance the care of a person presenting with mental distress.
