Master Class: Transforming the Careers Guidance Interview – An Effective Integrated Counselling Approach (Morning Session)

More Information 

JULY 9th - Birmingham

JANUARY 15th - York

Overview

In the UK counselling and careers guidance have long been regarded as separate career routes, indeed career development and management are often thought of as predominantly rational processes.  In reality careers practitioners have always relied on counselling skills in their practice, but a key question is - do we truly strive to work with the emotional content of what our clients are telling us (both verbally and non-verbally)? 

This course will challenge you to look at the counselling skills you use in your guidance interviews; encourage you to step outside your safety zone and develop advanced empathic understanding in your practice.

Learning objectives

  • Gain an understanding of how Careers Guidance and Counselling fit together.
  • Understand when and how to use counselling skills in a guidance context.
  • Understand how to develop advanced empathic understanding and put it into practice.
  • Recognise individual blockages to exercising skills of empathy, unconditional positive regard and congruence.
  • Gain an understanding of how Careers Guidance and Counselling fit together.

Target audience

This new three-hour intensive master class has been designed to meet the needs of career development practitioners who are keen to improve their career guidance skills, with a view of developing a coaching approach in their client interactions. whether you work with young people or adults in education, learning, training or employment, this master class will help you to expand and advance your skills.

Transforming the Careers Guidance Interview – An Effective Integrated Counselling Approach will take place in the morning and Achieving a Breakthrough with the “Stuck Client”: The Art of Effective Challenging will take place in the afternoon
