This course will enable candidates to develop clinical intervention skills using several different modalities. Candidates will apply interviewing and counselling skills in pre-interventions (mastery of pre-intervention protocols, including delivering and interpreting school-based assessments, motivational interviewing; and prevention psycho-education programs), interventions for behaviour problems, violence, drug and alcohol issues, school problems, crisis intervention, loss and bereavement, trauma and family issues; and post-intervention (integrative team approaches in developing critical incident debriefing; report writing and reparation). The skills attained in this course will enable candidates to apply clinical counselling skills in schools and community settings.
