A counseling curriculum will provide an opportunity for a counseling student to prepare to meet professional requirements.
International research indicates that counseling exists in some form or another in most cultures. A characteristic researchers have found consistently is the adaptability of counseling skills and practice to fit the needs and expectations of a particular culture or region.
Technology is creating some interesting counseling delivery tools including phone counseling, chat counseling, e-mail counseling, and video counseling.
The exact definition of professional counseling varies because practice adapts to contexts.
A counseling curriculum might include course work in the following areas;
Foundations of Counseling: The Helping Relationship
Human Growth and Development
Social and Cultural Foundations of Counseling
Theories of Counseling
Appraisal and Testing of Individuals
Techniques of Group Counseling
Lifestyle and Career Development
Professional Orientation and Ethics
Research and Evaluation
Counseling Learning Practicum.
