Basic Counselling Skills - Part 2
The second part of the Basic Counselling Skills online course aims to build on the ideas and strategies presented in the first section in terms of having helpful, effective conversations.
Offered by CRANAplus Bush Support Services, this course will further develop the core skills of congruence, empathy and positive regard as they apply to conversations centring on more difficult themes. Following on from Part 1, Part 2 of this course continues to promote the importance of self-reflection and it continues to encourage participants to practise the identified skills in everyday life.
Who is this course for?
Health practitioners working in rural and remote settings who deal with common personal and relationship issues with other staff members, their patients and clients. It is an introductory course and is NOT designed to provide professional counselling training.
This course will be helpful for health professionals who recognise that sometimes what is required in a helpful relationship is beyond advice giving. It is useful for those who wish to encourage self-reliance and empower the people they are dealing with. The course is for health professionals who wish to further their interpersonal skills in a way that highlights the value of and respect to others.
