Content

Outcomes
Students are able to (1) develop professional competence in a work context; (2) develop the ability to bring one's academic training to bear on practical problems in diverse situations; (3) develop a critical appreciation of the roles and functions of psychologists in organisations and the community; and (4) gain insight into the constraints which apply in work environments, and the relationships which exist between theory and practice.
Assessment
Indicative assessments in this unit are as follows: (1) NPS assessment; (2) individual case study facilitation; and (3) class participation. Further information is available in the unit outline.

Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit.
