Bachelor Course Unit
Credit points: 6
Completion of 15 units before enrolling into a capstone (integration) unit
The purpose of this unit is to provide students with the opportunity to review and integrate key learnings in counselling that have developed over the Bachelor of Counselling course, to consolidate their professional identity as counsellors. Students will formulate and articulate an overarching understanding of their learning in the course and of the counselling discipline. Students will integrate selected samples from their assessments over the course, using a reflexive writing approach, into a report on their development of counselling knowledge and skills, and ethical decision making capacity. Students will critically reflect on their learning journey by identifying the major conceptual themes for each year of the course, and will examine how the course has facilitated their attainment of ACAP’s Graduate Attributes. The major findings of this report will be presented in class for on-campus students, and in the discussion forum for online students.

a) integrate key learnings in counselling developed over the course
b) critically evaluate their course experience
