Psychology Short Courses Melbourne
Psychology Melbourne’s short courses for personal development can be a great place to start your journey into understanding your own behaviour. They are a great stand alone option to learn new skills and improve your mental health and wellbeing, while waiting for individual therapy.
They do not replace therapy but are a great adjunct to therapy. They are also suitable for people who have recently finished a course of therapy and can act as a helpful way to step back into their normal lives.
In our courses you will learn how to make changes such as stop smoking, exercising more, how to sleep better, communicate well, organise your business activities, or reducing outbursts of anger.
Our courses are educational and interactive and throughout each session there will be discussion and group activities. Not only will you pick up invaluable information about topics such as social anxiety, anger management or mindfulness, but you will also learn coping techniques and strategies that can be useful long after the classes have ended.
Facilitated by an experienced presenter and qualified Psychologist, they employ Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and other forms of evidence-based psycho-educational 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 Short Courses are currently all online due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The size of groups vary from 10 – 20 participants and are run by experienced presenters who are all registered Psychologists. Each course includes handouts of helpful information, a psychological test, exercises and homework.
Courses run for 1 – 2 hours weekly over several weeks and start after work at 7 pm on different days during the week.
Research shows that a good mix of individual and group sessions can achieve greater results and is more cost effective.
