|Subject Overview:||The focus of this subject is on the psychosocial formulations of the high frequency conditions of depression and anxiety across the life span. Advances in the understanding of these two conditions and their relevance to life stresses and quality of life issues have resulted in the increased importance of including the psychosocial context in assessment, intervention and research. Changes in policy strategies and funding both nationally and in Victoria have emphasised the importance of prevention strategies and service development. Social workers and other community providers are in a unique position to respond to people suffering from depression and anxiety. This subject will aim to strengthen their capacity to respond effectively.|
