Student Workshops

No matter how hard you work at university, there are some things that you never learn until you begin working in the field. There are many skills you simply aren't taught and that you never have an opportunity to practice.  Many students leave university with strong academic skills, but little knowledge on how to practically respond to day to day issues. 

What would you do or say if: 

  • Your client states they want to commit suicide
  • You need to assess a child that has been sexually abused 
  • You need to talk with a woman about her violent partner

Pracademics Inc wants to inform and inspire smart students to become excellent practitioners – before they are thrown in the field.  We have developed a series of workshops that are aimed solely at developing real life skills that you will use on a daily basis when working in the field.  Our workshops are designed to be interactive, and the small group format provides you with lots of opportunity for practice and feedback outside of an assessment environment.    

The Student Workshops are designed to complement University degrees in Criminology, Human Services, Psychology, Social Sciences and Social Work.  

We have two workshops:
