Postgraduate Diploma in Compassion Focused Therapy - Postgrado en Terapia Centrada en la Compasión
This course will introduce you to psychosocial development. Depending on your professional expertise, your studies will focus on one of three streams: counselling, education or research. These streams are embedded within the core units you will take.
In the counselling stream you will study a variety of counselling models and therapeutic tools as they relate to various areas of sexology. You’ll explore a range of sexological topics including common sexual issues, difficulties and dysfunctions and their treatments in the context of various populations. Ethics in sexology are also highly prioritised. You will also undertake a supervised placement where you will take psychosocial sexual histories, set counselling goals, and implement and evaluate counselling programs.
In the education stream you will explore different models of sexuality education, addressing social concerns and attitudes. You will consider age and culturally appropriate strategies when designing an integrated teaching program.
