We currently present an Advanced Counselling Skills Course for participants who have already completed basic training in counselling skills and are interested in learning more advanced strategies for counselling. In particular this course emphasises a Reality Therapy approach to counselling. Reality Therapy was initially developed by William Glasser in the 60s and have become a popular approach for counselling across the world. Reality Therapy is very compatible with our foundation approach to counselling (Person-Centred Counselling) and provides additional techniques and strategies for intervention.
Some of the contents of this course include:
- Basic principles of Reality Therapy
- Basic Human Needs
- The Circle of Courage
- Assessing clients' wants and needs
- Helping clients evaluate their own behaviour
- Helping clients develop clear action plans
This is a 4 session course usually presented once weekly over a period of 4 weeks, but can also be presented over 2 days as a full time course.
Application has been made the SA Council for Social Service Professions for CPD accreditation and we are currently awaiting feedback.
