Supervised Counselling Practice Integration (Practicum)
Lecturer: Dr. Art Wouters and Tracey Milson
This unit allows students to build on the face-to-face counselling hours acquired during their undergraduate and/or postgraduate years of study through supervised practice in an agency setting. The real life demands of the placement setting are the context for students to further apply and integrate their counselling knowledge, skills and personal and professional development experiences under supervision. In addition to exposing students to the operations of an agency, the unit is aimed at allowing them to develop as a reflective practitioners in counselling practice and requires a minimum of 70 supervised counselling hours and 18 hours of supervision (ration: 1hr s/v:4 hrs counselling). Students will cover content that includes organisational policies and procedures, professional role expectations and accountability, ethical and reflective practice, risk management, individual and group supervision, interpersonal skills demonstration, intake and assessment, client case note writing, reports and documentation.
