Diploma in Applied Counselling (DAC)
As the world becomes busier and busier, the need for counselling increases. People are faced with many challenges in life, can be very isolated, need trauma counselling or just need support. Counselors are trained in helping others to work through the problems. They can guide and direct people through a variety of situations and help them to focus on what really matters. Counselling may help those who are struggling in the world. A counsellor can help the person to get back on their feet and feel empowered and stronger than ever.
Practical is perhaps the most important component in the development of a competent counsellor. It is within the context of applied counselling that trainees begin to develop a sense of their professional identity and to examine their own beliefs and attitude regarding clients and therapy. A good counsellor will be fully aware of his or her own values, beliefs, attitudes and biases; being aware of them lessens the danger of their impacting negatively on the counselling relationship. We all operate within a personal belief system, but counsellors need to remember always to work with their clients in a way which is consistent with the client’s values, not their own. When in practice, they can choose the kind of population they want to work with, such as adults, adolescents, older individuals, or people with disabilities, to name a few. They may work with all these groups or exclusively with one of them, depending on the nature of their particular counselling practice. In order to satisfy the requirements of such qualified and well trained personnel, the SRC Community College intended to launch a Diploma Programme in Applied Counselling. Details of the Programme are as follows.
