The Master of Rehabilitation Counselling (MRehabClng) prepares graduates for professional practice as rehabilitation counsellors. Graduates attain professional status as a rehabilitation counsellor and are qualified to provide specialist counselling, rehabilitation, and case management services to people who have experienced injury, disability or social disadvantage.
The course includes studies in vocational development and counselling, applied psychosocial and medical rehabilitation, case management, client assessment and job placement, work injury and worker's compensation, and rehabilitation philosophy. Elective studies may be undertaken in rehabilitation in relation to alcohol and drug misuse, psychiatric rehabilitation, developmental disabilities, or special interests as approved by the Course Director.
The course is a graduate-entry program (students are required to have completed an undergraduate degree prior to entry). The MRehabClng is designed to accommodate all suitably qualified candidates regardless of their previous discipline. However, a formal background in psychology, rehabilitation, or related subjects is desirable.
As the course leads to professional accreditation, students will be assisted in achieving prescribed professional competencies through practical and theoretical skill acquisition and clinical fieldwork placements. Clinical placements are undertaken in both the public and private sectors. Students will have the opportunity to develop an understanding of the career path they have chosen, and its place in the contemporary health system.
The pace of work in the MRehabClng is commensurate with the expectations of postgraduate study, as is the level and complexity of the issues dealt with in the degree, including research project design.
