Participants will improve their online counselling skills and professionalism. The course is highly interactive and personal with a low student/teacher ratio. Online group and dyadic processes are used so that the entire course is a forum to practise text-based communication skills. Participants from around the world will study and discuss assigned readings, learn about and use secure e-mail and chat technology, practise a diverse range of therapeutic communication skills and tools, engage in role-play, and receive clinical feedback once each Module.
The course employs a "practitioner-researcher" model and covers the three areas that are essential to the provision of professional, ethical, and effective online counselling services:
- Enhancing the therapeutic alliance online
- Ethical and practical issues, including a focus on video counselling
- Technological knowledge and skills
