ED6071Theories in Counselling Psychology3 ch
This course examines the major theories of counselling psychology and their historical contexts. Theories emerging from the three schools of psychology—Psychoanalytic, Behavioral and Humanistic—will be considered and emphasis will be placed on theory as a basis for practice. For each theoretical approach, the guiding principles, therapeutic process, and the application of this process in counselling settings will be explored. An additional focus of the course is to have students move toward articulating a beginning personal theory of counselling. Note that ED 6071 is pre-requisite to all of the skill-based courses in Counselling.
