537 Advanced Approaches to Counseling and Psychotherapy Skills


This course will advance students through a process of Adlerian basic skills review, middle-level skills development, and move to an advanced understanding of more mature clinical skills awareness and use.  Students will become familiar with their own level of capability in practice, via self-reflective and empirical review of their current capability, knowledge and comfort with a wide array of techniques and applications related to diagnosis assessment, treatment planning, context flexibility, case management and prognosis.  Multiple contexts and modalities of care will be reviewed as they pertain to medical, religious, social service, non-profit, private practice, clinical, and school-related settings.  Individual, dyadic, familial, group, and organizational approaches will also be examined.
