CEDU 602 Counseling Theories and Techniques II

A study of the counseling process through the lens of cognitive, behavioral, systemic, historical, and post-modern approaches. Analysis of the philosophical, practical, and culturally-responsive aspects of each counseling theory are explored along with the specific skills and techniques employed. Continued emphasis is placed on counselor self-awareness including an examination of personal characteristics, orientations, and skill development as they influence the helping process. Students are expected to demonstrate skills required to establish a therapeutic relationship, set appropriate counseling goals, design and implement intervention strategies, evaluate client outcome, successfully terminate the counselor-client relationship, and maintain appropriate professional boundaries and will continue to refine a personal model of counseling.
