Mental Health Counseling

Seminar in Counseling Techniques

This 3-unit, lecture/lab course is designed to help you acquire the theoretical framework and skills to function appropriately as an entry-level counselor in a variety of settings. You will NOT emerge from the course as a polished psychotherapist, but you will be provided the basic tenets on which many outstanding therapists base their technique. Emphasis is placed on learning and demonstrating the "core conditions" of counseling as defined by the person-centered movement.
