PGD Guidance and Counseling: EDUGC03 - Principles and Practice of Guidance and Counselling

Course Description

This course introduces students to the different techniques, strategies and skills utilised by the major counselling approaches in the practice of guidance and counselling. The use of case studies, role plays and mock counselling sessions ensures students gain both procedural knowledge and practical counselling opportunities, allowing students to engage in the practice of counselling within a “safe environment” and thereby assisting the development of a personal frame of operation for counsellor-client relationships. The Principles and Practice of Guidance and Counselling course will be taught in conjunction with EDUGC02: Theories of Guidance and Counselling course, to promote integration of the theoretical knowledge gained within a practical and procedural framework.
