CNED 541 Counseling Techniques
This course is designed to integrate the theoretical and practical dimensions of counseling. The major objective is to provide the counselor trainee a pre-practicum experience in which various counseling techniques can be applied in a laboratory setting via learning devices such as role-playing, modeling, and analyzing taped interviews. Basic attending skills and more advanced counseling skills of confrontation, focusing, influencing, and reflecting with meaning will be explored. Students will be required to self-critique their work, to provide in-class feedback to peers, and to present some of their role-play work to the class. The goal is for students to be able to identify their profile of strengths and areas of improvement. A minimum grade of "B" in this course is required prior to placement in Practicum (CNED 596).
Prerequisites: SCNS Degree student status, completion of, or concurrent enrollment in, CNED 540.
