Offered by: Cont Educ - Education     Degree: Graduate Certificate Couns Appl to Teaching

Program Requirements

The goal of this program is to enhance teachers' knowledge and skills in interpersonal relations, communication, interviewing, group organization and leadership, crisis intervention, and career thinking and planning. Each of these knowledge areas addresses the recognition of situations when it is appropriate to make a referral to a personal or career counsellor, psychologist, or other professional. The program addresses both elementary and secondary education.

This graduate certificate does not qualify graduates to practise professional counselling or psychology (e.g., conducting psycho­logical assessments or psychotherapy), or to refer to themselves by the term Counsellor or Psychologist: these are legally reserved titles. Programs leading to licensing as Counsellor or Psychologist are presented under Educational and Counselling Psychology (Counselling Psychology and School/Applied Child Psychology) or Psychology (Clinical Psychology) in Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies.
