This topic focuses on opportunities to gain an understanding of basic counselling theories and micro-skills that are applicable in a variety of work and personal settings. Students are encouraged to draw on work and practicum experiences gained up to this point in their program of study, and to apply new counselling knowledge and skills to their personal lives as well as current work and practicum settings. An integral aspect of the topic for internal students is student participation in tutorial skills-building sessions which are used for the supervised practice of micro-skills and techniques that are presented throughout the semester. External students are required to practice specified skills weekly with friends, colleagues, or family members and to provide feedback on these activities to their tutor.
