Learning outcomes

The webcast will help you to:

  • consider how a client chooses a counsellor working in private practice, including which factors that influence their selection and the extent to which they were aware of the regulatory status of the profession
  • understand what is helpful or unhelpful when accessing counselling after experiencing domestic violence from a client perspective and investigate the experiences of male survivors when accessing counselling services.
  • examine how positioning individuals to take responsibility for their own psychological wellbeing plays out in the context of the work place.
  • explore the perception of counselling among the non-clinical adult population of the Chinese community, and their barriers to counselling services.
  • learn about how managing trust and its ruptures is key for service delivery, training and supervision, if we are to provide safe, effective, and responsive mental health services for complex trauma and beyond
