Counselling and Mental Health in Organisations - PSYO904

Organisations are increasingly becoming involved in the mental health and wellbeing of employees. It is likely that this is a consequence of two central factors: (1) community pressure for organisations to take greater responsibility for mental health care (as is the case for physical health), and (2) ensuring performance in a competitive commercial climate. Thus, the role of organisations is extending to looking after the emotional welfare of their employees and an organisational psychologist may find the requirement to blend their knowledge of organisational behaviour with knowledge of traditional clinical psychology. This unit aims to provide masters students in organisational psychology with a basic understanding of counselling techniques, suicide-risk assessment, psychopathology and intervention strategies and their relevance to practice within organisations.
