Basic Interviewing Skills

This basic counselling interviewing skills course is designed to train students in basic help-intended communication skills in order to increase their competence in empathic listening and responding for facilitating client self-awareness and self-exploration.  This course is not intended to be a general basic interviewing course, for example, job interviewing, survey questioning, information gathering, persuasive or directive communication skills.

This course will introduce students to some communication theories and common practices in the counselling profession. Egan’s (2001) three-stage integrative model of interpersonal helping will be used as the foundation for our discussion, however we will frequently move beyond this text.  Social and cultural issues will also be discussed to increase student sensitivity to contextual factors that impact the counselling process. Additionally, common counselling issues—including confidentiality, power differentials, counsellor bias, dual relationships and counsellor self-development —will be discussed.
