WES 1210   Social Work Practice II   Credits: 4

In this course, students will experience a continuation of WES 1110-04 with the addition of new core concepts which enables the helper to conscientiously use his/her self in the helping relationship. Effective helpers are committed to understanding clients including the ways in which they experience themselves and their world. Effective helpers invite clients to challenge themselves to examine new perspectives and behaviours. A variety of communication skills are used to accomplish their tasks including facilitative genuineness, advanced acurate empathy, immediacy and principles of effective challenging. Stage II of the helping model will be covered. The process of becoming an effective counsellor requires self-awareness and further exploration of one's personal paradigms. Once again, students will be asked to explore their personal values, beliefs, attitudes and behaviour that impact on the development of these helping skills.
