Counseling Skills

PSY 450
Description: Students will examine major theoretical perspectives in the field of counseling psychology (e.g., psychoanalytic, person-centered, cognitive/behavioral). Students will have the opportunity to practice clinical assessment, listening skills, try out various counseling skills, as well as reflect on ethical issues involved with counseling. Discussion and written work will emphasize the importance of being able to apply a wide repertoire of counseling skills. A final self-reflective project will ask the students to critically evaluate their own counseling ability and learned skills.
