This first course of the Master of Counselling Social Work program will introduce you to the parameters of context and relationship in counselling and consider the generic social work orientation to clients’ strengths and resilience. You will examine the importance of the specificity of contexts of therapy and contextual and power issues in therapeutic relationships. You will also develop the capacity for cultural and diversity responsiveness in the context of contemporary social work counselling practice. You will also engage with issues in your own practice of use of self, engagement, empathy, containment, and boundaries.
