Aims of the Workshop
The Introduction to E-Counselling Skills is in many parts which are best completed in sequence. It introduces you to e-counselling using both text, via email and IM (instant messaging) plus webcam. The learning is self-directed.
This is a robust course for online counselling and there is a virtual role-play experience.
If you decide to continue & complete the Diploma in Online Counselling you will build on this knowledge by following a timetable of weekly tasks which introduce you to working with real clients with a personal tutor who walks alongside on your journey. You will receive group supervision for your client work during the time the Diploma is running.
Explore, research and discuss the challenges which face online counsellors who work with a global client base, consider ethical, legal and health issues from a world perspective as well as considering the different ways the internet may be used for online counselling and therapy.
