Inclusive Community Development - REHB5941

The overarching theme of this Unit of Study is community development as an applied rehabilitation counselling strategy. Students will study WHO Community-Based Rehabilitation (CBR) guidelines and the principles of Community-based Inclusive development (CBID) as a systems framework for emerging professional practice. Students will explore how this systems framework informs modern practice at clinical, agency, and policy levels across the five CBR domains (Health, Education, Livelihood, Social, and Empowerment). Student projects will entail the development of international case studies and a portfolio project that demonstrates real, or potential Australian applications.
