This course builds on Counselling Skills CDS1002 by training the students in two contemporary and popular models of counselling that have high flexibility and applicability. Students will learn a collaborative competency based approach (Solution oriented/Narrative therapy) and Motivational Interviewing. Both approaches are particularly well suited to the orientation of being client directed in counselling. Solution Oriented therapy emphasises a postmodern way of working with clients, and the Motivational Interviewing approach leans towards modernism and enables students to comfortably work in both contextual and medical model frameworks.
This course contains a recommended residential school.
