Counselling and Cultural Perspectives - PSY904

This unit focuses on the skills involved in facilitating a good client-therapist relationship as a basis for psychological therapy. It involves a review of the micro skills of reflecting back content, feelings, and process within a non-directive context while exploring clients presenting problems through neutral questioning and comments. Professional skills of critical reflection are also emphasised as an important avenue of exploration for psychologists’ personal and professional development. The issue of the cultural context of clients and how that might relate to their present problems is also given special attention.
