CNS 5400. Theories of Counseling (3 credits)


Students in this course will be introduced to existing and emerging counseling theories that can be used as models to conceptualize clients' concerns. Students will learn about the interventions associated with each of the theories and the client populations, such as individuals or families, most appropriate for each of the interventions. The counseling theories will be critiqued from a multicultural perspective. Recurring themes, such as self-awareness, will be emphasized to assist students in consciously reflecting on their philosophy on life and its influence on their approaches to counseling. Students are expected to begin to articulate their personal models of counseling based on the information that they are exposed to in this course. A theory-to-practice approach is utilized to promote counseling effectiveness with individuals, families, and groups throughout the lifespan and across diverse populations. PREREQ: Admission to the Clinical Mental Health Counseling program or the Professional School Counseling program.
