Counseling Theories

Theories and Models of Counseling

Students will become familiar with the established and emerging theories and models of counseling including historical context and key names, terms and concepts. The course will also focus upon how theory translates into practice and will consider available outcome research. Each student will be expected to be able to articulate his or her own tentative personal theoretical orientation at the end of the course.
