The central focus of this course revolves around typical schemes of progress and the structuring of counselling interviews in settings with individual clients, families, or systems. Role-plays provide a starting point for professional reflection of conversations. Here, special attention is paid to a respectful attitude and mode of engagement.
Differing approaches to counselling (i.e. systemic, solution-oriented, person-centred, psychoanalytical) will be introduced and the systemic-solution oriented consultation will be especially practiced in role-plays.
