Methods in Counseling

About this course:

In this short course, we’ll cover a few key counseling methods, how to apply them to everyday life and how these tools can enhance our communities. We will utilize psychoanalytical theory and methods from person-centered therapy.

Having useful tools from the psychological community based on theory, experience, and research can help us improve our ability to counsel others in their time of need.
