Counselling SE

2 SWS
3 ECTS

Lecture contents

The students engage with the fundamentals of conversation guidance, bearing in mind the different settings (mandated settings, first conversation, challenging forms of communication). They receive an overview of the different forms of communication in Social Work (i.e. counselling, negotiating, informing, mediation). Techniques and activities within counselling, such as listening actively, sending I-messages, perceptions, asking helpful questions und dealing with silence are practiced. The fundamentals of the setting and relationship-building are conveyed, and an engagement with (im)partiality takes place.
Ideal scenarios and structural patterns of counselling conversations in settings with individual clients, families or systems are central to this module. These are used as a starting point for a professionally sound reflection about conversations, which are simulated in role play. Different consultative approaches (i.e. systemic, solution-focused, person-centred, psychoanalytical) are presented and practiced using role playing.

Lecture contents

The second practical placement provides concrete knowledge of the nature of organisations and practical job experience, which gives students an all-round perspective into the everyday professional life of social workers and social pedagogues. It allows for them to understand the life context and problems of clients or specific groups and lets them realise the scope, impact and responsibility that their professional actions have. Furthermore, the orienting placement also provides exposure to various profession-related realities and allows connections to be made between what has been theoretically instructed and practical experiences, thus allowing the possibility to question the adaptability and relevance of theory in everyday work life.

1 SWS
1 ECTS

Lecture contents

Full time students:
In various settings, students will present their experiences from the practical placements of the previous semester; in doing so, various presentation techniques will be implemented.
In small groups and in individual coaching, students reflect upon and analyse relevant topics from the professional practice and provide insights into questions and problems they have brought with them from various social institutions and social systems (both in Austria and abroad). The learning experiences from the practical placement will be connected to each other and integrated in the context of the training in such a way that the professional identity is supported.

Part time students:
During the practical placements which are experienced between the 3rd and 5th semester, emphasis will be placed on the continual reflection and analyse of diverse personal and professional experiences, both in single and group contexts, as well as the integration of experiences in the students’ own professional understanding. This serves the students own development of a professional identity.

1.5 SWS

Lecture contents

In this module, the students acquire an understanding of the conditions and objectives of ‘reflection' and collectively generate group rules for the formation of the module. Self-perception and external perception are addressed, and team and cooperation skills strengthened.
Furthermore, students acquire fundamental knowledge about selected social organisations i.e. relating to their history, goals, tasks, legal conditions, financial foundations, professional repertoire of methods, organisational structure and documentation. Current questions by selected institutions, as well as concrete practice experience are reflected, and related to theory and practice where appropriate. This is also done in preparation for a 4-week long work placement, which full time students complete at the beginning of the 2nd semester and relates to the practice orientation days for part time students in the 1st/2nd semester. Questions about reconciling studies, work placement and professional motivation are discussed. The different roles of work placement managers and interns are discussed and explained.
