Individual Counseling Skills Lab
In this course, students develop clinical skills by providing a series of weekly 50 minute counseling sessions to trained actors who will serve as clients. The departmental laboratory includes digital video recordings in order to code counseling micro-skills for concrete and specific learner feedback. Students will meet in small groups with the instructor to review videos throughout the semester. Making and analyzing these digital recordings will efficiently improve clinical skills and provide preparation for the challenge of working with “real” clients in practicum and internship. This lab requirement is taken simultaneously with CNSL A835 Introduction to Clinical Mental Health Counseling under guidance of the same instructor.
$100 Lab fee.
