Counsellors need to have approaches that fit for their clients and also the agency and context with which they work. This course teaches students to understand and practice two different counselling models, that can be applied in a wide range of settings and a broad cross-section of clients, while still respecting agency and client preferences.
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 mandatory residential school and mandatory online tutorials.
