General Information


The ability to communicate effectively in a variety of formats with diverse individuals and groups is an essential skill for professionals such as psychologists which involve working with people. This unit will provide you with practical skills for effective communication, including interviewing and active listening skills. You will learn how different modes of communicating can be used for different audiences (professional, academic, peers, the general population, specific communities). You will reflect on your ongoing development of communication skills and how these apply to future work or study.
