Thank you so much
The aim of this unit is to enable learners to investigate the role of counselling in health and social care, and to use and evaluate their own counselling skills.
The focus of this unit is on the identification, practice and development of counselling skills. On completion of the unit, learners will have had the opportunity to develop inter-related skills required to initiate, maintain and conclude a counselling interaction. Learners will also explore appropriate theoretical perspectives that underpin counselling and how the core models of counselling may be applied in health and social care situations. Learners will acquire an understanding of ethical considerations in counselling and the ethical codes that govern counselling practice. Learning should take place through the use of role play, with peer and tutor observation and feedback supporting learners to develop the self-awareness and skills needed for counselling interactions. This unit will enable learners to develop appropriate counselling skills to support their work role in health and social care.
