Students in the counselling major who cannot attend the residential school may apply to attend the following year, may consider transferring to BHMS (Child and Family) or another major, or stay within the program and potentially graduate without eligibility for PACFA membership. The residential school will be held at USQ Toowoomba over five consecutive days from 9am to 4:30pm daily, from Wed 3 April through to Sunday 7 April 2013. Students are responsible for arranging and financing their own travel, accommodation and meals. There is an on-site student refectory for meals and refreshments. Information about accommodation can be found at http://www.usq.edu.au/toowoomba/accommodation. Students are required to bring a pen, writing paper, and USB thumb drive.
The course introduces students to core concepts in counselling and integrates these within a core transtheoretical model of counselling. Students learn about various treatment philosophies and approaches to commonly presenting client issues. This course emphasises both personal and professional self-exploration and development.
IMPORTANT NOTE #: Students studying this in external mode may have important residential school attendance requirements. Please see section 'Other requirements' for more information.
The Bachelor of Human Services (Counselling) is fully accredited by the Psychotherapy and Counselling Association of Australia (PACFA).
