Synopsis

EDU8333 builds on the basic micro-skills of counselling that were introduced in EDU8332 (Introduction to Counselling in Educational Contexts). The micro-skills training approach to counselling has a long history with strong evidence of efficacy. EDU8333 extends basic micro-skills of attending, active listening and questioning to the skills of influencing, shaping counselling sessions for better outcomes and integrating the skills through case analysis. Counselling and psychotherapy theory is explored to inform the process of developing a personal theory and practice of counselling in educational contexts. A strong online pedagogy supports student learning and helps to build a sense of belonging to a community of practice where students are seen as significant contributors to knowledge building and skill development in this complex field. An ecological and case study approach is used to assist students develop skills in case analysis and formulation as part of the determination to engage in counselling as an intervention in an educational setting.
