Counseling: A Brief Course in Brief Counseling
The purpose of this course is to present information to Doctoral Students in Counselor Education on several forms of Brief Counseling. These will include Structural, Strategic, Solution-Focused, Narrative, and Communication theories and techniques of counseling and psychotherapy. Emphasis will be placed on the similarities and differences among these post-modern forms; and their difference in epistemology from linear theories. It is hoped that this seminar will aid the student in expanding his/her skills in facilitating change more effectively with all clients, especially those from minority or underserved populations.
