Working with groups is an important aspect of practice in community and human services. This course provides students with an introduction to group work practice by exploring what group work actually is. The course also explores the values and theories underpinning group work; group work models and stages of group development; group dynamics and group processes and will enable students to develop a range of strategies to enable them to effectively plan and implement group programs. Students will study this course in an intensive block mode, enabling all students to participate in group sessions and gain skills in facilitating group activities.
* excluding students enrolled in a Postgraduate Clinical Psychology, Professional Pathway Psychology or Professional Pathway Social Work program. For accredited program and student contribution information please visit our CSP page.
Note: Due to the Job-ready Graduates Package new funding clusters and contribution amounts will take effect in the 2021 academic year. Grandfathering arrangements will be in place for students who would see an increase in their contribution amounts. Under these arrangements, students who commenced their course of study before 1 January 2021 facing increased student contribution amounts for a unit, will instead have their student contribution and Australian Government contribution amounts remain as they were under the previous arrangements (with existing rates being indexed by CPI each year). If continuing students are enrolled in units that will see their student contribution amount lowered, their student contributions will be the lowered amount
