Counselor’s Training 3

This class focuses on four areas of counseling skills: Attending, Focusing, Influencing, and Confrontation. Each of these four skills is dealt with extensively. The students are taught how to use each of these skills for the benefit of their clients. They are also taught how to interpret the client’s use of these skills as a means of avoiding issues or manipulating the session. Class requirements include small group class interaction for practice and demonstration purposes, a large group presentation to show mastery of material, class participation, and attendance. Counselor’s Training 1 and 2 must have been completed to join this class. This course must be joined before the second week.
