Psychology Short Courses Melbourne

Psychology Melbourne’s short courses for personal development can effectively enhance and complement your therapy, or be a great standalone option to learn new skills and improve your mental health and well-being.

Our psycho-education psychology short courses allow you to learn about specific mental health topics. Not only will you pick up invaluable information about topics such as social anxiety, anger management or mindfulness, you will also learn coping techniques and strategies that can be useful long after the classes have ended.

They are efficient, low-cost ways to gain learn the tools and strategies required to cope with stressful situations. For example, you can learn how to calm yourself down; how to avoid angry outbursts; and how to improve communication in your relationship.

Facilitated by an experienced presenter and registered psychologist, they employ Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and other forms of evidence-based psychoeducational techniques.

They are not group therapy sessions. Participants are not encouraged to reveal deeply personal information as this is better dealt with in confidential, individual sessions.

How do Short Courses work?

Our Psychology short courses are small groups for up to 10 people run by experienced presenters who are all registered psychologists. Each course includes handouts of helpful information, a psychological test, fun exercises and homework.

They run for 1-hour per week, over three weeks and start after work at 6 pm on different days during the week.

Research shows, and Medicare supports, that a good mix of individual and group sessions can achieve greater results and is more cost effective.
