Counseling Theories and Techniques

This course focuses on the study and critical analysis of the major counseling theories, tools, and techniques as they apply to the counseling process. Students will be exposed to historical and psychological foundations. They will be trained in observing the skills and techniques employed by practitioners using those theoretical perspectives. There will be opportunities, through assignments, role plays, and interactive class discussions, for students to analyze themselves and others through the various lenses of counseling and psychotherapy.
