Theoretical frameworks used in counselling will be reviewed, followed by a step-by-step introduction to conducting a counselling interview. Role-plays, demonstrations and case examples will be used to teach basic therapeutic skills. The unit will also involve self-reflective exercises, and will have a focus on ethical and professional practice.
