Our Graduate Diploma of Relationship Counselling CHC81015, is now in its second year, with enrolments currently open for February 2020.

Suitable for professionals in social services, this course provides graduates with the knowledge and skills to support individuals and families affected by a range of complex personal and relational issues that impact individual and family functioning, including family violence.

Recognising the need for knowledge and skills for responding to family violence, the course provides students with training in a range of theories and practices.

Workshops and a fully supported work placement provide students with opportunities to practice relationship counselling skills in the context of family violence.

Graduates will be equipped for counselling positions and senior roles involving oversight of family violence service delivery including risk management, multi-disciplinary collaborative practice that is aligned with current practice requirements, family violence practice guidelines and legal/statutory obligations.
