Under supervision, students discover how to define issues, clarify goals, and mobilize energy and resources to achieve these goals. Students practice evaluating progress, and conceptualize level of resistance/degree of client/counselor commitment to the process. Basic counseling considerations (transference, countertransference) and ethical practices (competence, confidentiality, duty to warn, dual relationships) are also considered.  Required for MA in Holistic Counseling program only.
