COUN 556 - Theories and Techniques of Counseling

3 hours
Provides a comprehensive survey of the major contemporary theories of counseling, as well as their implications for practice. Core topics such as historical background, key concepts, the counseling process, counseling techniques and procedures, multicultural perspectives, and evaluation are examined for each theory. Students are given the opportunity to conceptualize selected case studies, decide on appropriate counseling interventions, and practice a variety of techniques that are commonly used in counseling practice. Students also begin the process of developing their own personal model of counseling.  Each theory is evaluated from the Christian perspective and the relevance of such a perspective when choosing personal models is studied.
