Brief Module Descriptions

BPS205 Social Psychology

Humans are social animals, and as such, it is very important to understand the psychology of how we interact with each other, or act as a group rather than as an individual. By understanding the ‘natural’ social needs of a person, you can develop an increased sensitivity to other people, and better identify and assist people with attending to deficiencies in their social interactions.

BPS206 Counselling Techniques

Which theories have had a lasting affect on modern counselling and psychotherapy? Which techniques are best suited to different situations? Learn about the major theoretical approaches to counselling and their application. This course does not recommend one technique over another – it makes the student aware of different therapies that can be used to help clients. This is an indispensible part of training or professional development for counsellors. Pre-requisites: Introduction to Psychology.

BBS304 Business Coaching

Being a manager or business owner can be a lonely job at times. A business coach can be there as a sounding board and confidant to help the business person to voice their issues and then help the person to find solutions to their problems effectively and quickly. Good business coaches are in high demand around the world.

BPS201 Conflict Management

Conflict is a normal part of life. How we manage conflict can destroy relationships and lead to increased stress, or it can improve our relationships and give us a greater sense of control over ourselves and our environments. Explore the causes and effects of conflict. Learn how to manage it through effective communication, active listening, and problem solving. Develop your ability to use facilitation, negotiation or mediation in group situations to acheive win-win solutions.

Research Project II

Learn to plan and conduct research into the current status of an aspect of an industry relating to their area of study, and to complete a descriptive report based on that research.

BPS109 Counselling Skills I

This course introduces you to the kinds of  problems and issues that a person might face in overcoming stresses and limiting attitudes. Learn about the counsellor’s role and the counselling process, and gain basic practical counselling skills. Recommended for parents, teachers and others who want to communicate in a more supportive, empathetic manner. Pre-requisite: Introduction to Psychology or the equivalent.

BPS107 Marketing Psychology

When you understand why people make a decision to buy, or not to buy, you have a foundation for improving the marketing of anything. This is a different but very important and valuable course for anyone involved in sales, marketing or business of any kind.
