Counseling Techniques and Practice

This course will provide an introduction to the development of counseling skills. Students will be introduced to a variety of techniques through the observation and critique of videotapes of master clinicians, in-class role plays, taping and transcription of interviews, and in-class demonstrations. The student’s own personal growth, self-insight, and self-awareness will be an integral component to this course.
