Philosophy For Counsellors
Correspondence Course Information
If you want to become a counsellor, study counselling.
But if you want to become a good counsellor study philosophy as well.
How can philosophy make you a better counsellor? This course introduces those interested in the practice of psychotherapy, counselling, guidance, rehabilitation, or social work to the useful skills and information found in philosophy. Topics include how to apply ethical theories to every-day moral decision-making, how to recognize and deal with a client’s problematic thinking habits, how to deal with issues of power and authority in both the household and the community, how to help a client find and develop meaning in life, how to help a client discover personal identity and develop self-confidence, and how to differentiate between facts, values, feelings, and meaning.
"I'm working as a counsellor and although I work primarily with Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), this course is taking me further and is more challenging than what I've done in CBT so far. I don't mind this as it will sharpen my skills no end."
- Pauline Enright (Australia).
