Credit Points: 6
Relational communication skills are fundamental in supporting people with their mental health and wellbeing in any professional context. In this unit you will augment your understanding of how to build person-centred connections which foster safety for yourself and others. Through experiential learning about key interpersonal skills you will recognise their application in different contexts and theoretical approaches to counselling practice, and gain experience in the use of these techniques to support others. Integrative activities will provide opportunities to consider the influence of your own values, biases, and beliefs, which is a core aspect of self-reflective practice.
