Details

Relationship or couples counselling has gained much popularity over recent years, possibly due to the complexities and expectations of modern life and the rising divorce statistics. This course explores the basic phases or stages of relationship counselling, and examines separation, divorce, violent relationships and problems based on sexual difficulties. The relationship may be hetero- or homosexual.
In addition to the study of various counselling approaches, a range of working models and theories specific to this field will be explained as well as the concepts of meta-communication, genograms and reflective practice. Specific attention will be given to psychodynamic, cognitive behavioural and person-centred approaches, which will give a fuller working knowledge and understanding of advanced counselling skills. In specialist counselling fields, these skills are necessary in order to be able to recognise and deal with the complex range of client needs, together with being able to understand the origins of these particular emotions and possible physiological factors.

Content

 

Module 1: Introduction to course topic and reappraisal of counselling skills

This module introduces the concept of relationship counselling, and reflects on previous knowledge in counselling, looking in detail at five theories which have been adopted as approaches in modern counselling. In this module the work of Freud, Rogers, Skinner, Ellis, Jung and Egan will be highlighted, and the corresponding counselling approaches examined.

 

Module 2: The psychodynamic approach

This module examines the psychodynamic approach and its usefulness in relationship and couples counselling. This approach may have special significance in the context of various attachments and potential issues that may arise. The process of change and sexuality from Freud’s original theories to the more social and relationship based approaches of the psychodynamic therapies is identified and explained.

 

Module 3: The cognitive behavioural approach

In this module, an understanding of the key concepts of the cognitive behavioural approach to counselling in the context of intimate relationships is studied. The conditioning and social cognitive theories are described through cognitive techniques and their applications and relevance to relationship and couples counselling. Confidence in the ability to integrate such components with other counselling approaches is practiced.

 

Module 4: The person-centred approach

In the study of this module, key elements of the person-centred approach to counselling are learned. The hierarchy of needs developed by Maslow `s explained in relation to counselling. Person-centred techniques and their relevance and application to relationship and couples counselling are explored in detail.

 

Module 5: Boundaries, ethics and defining the relationship

This module focuses on key aims of counselling, and includes confidentiality and ethical conduct within the counselling role. Opportunity is provided of considering the integration of different counselling approaches suitable for client need. Boundaries or limitations of counselling are identified and defined. It also looks at what types of consent and responsibilities the counsellor has to seek. In addition, some historical background of the development of counselling in this context is described, together with the emergence of the therapeutic concepts in use today.

 

Module 6: Exploring the problems

This module examines the assessment of clients' needs, and how to consider building a collaborative relationship within the therapeutic environment. During this phase of counselling, the exploration and understanding of problems begin and the future effort, planning and facilitation necessary for successful resolution is established. As two people are involved, the complexities involved in ensuring everyone are heard is discussed.

 

Module7: Working through the problems

Within this module communication habits are discussed, together with references and examples of various working models such as attachment, triangular relationships, splitting and projection. The process is open and participative, so that there is clarity that a relationship may not recover, and if so the best and possible amicable way to separate are discussed.

 

Module 8: Facilitating change

This module addresses acceptance and resolution of difficulties. This is the phase where change is facilitated via counselling strategies and techniques, together with the implementation of agreed programmes for homework, communicative exercises and maintenance. There may be many emotional conflicts and feelings so how to sensitively tackle this is explored.

 

Module 9: Specific relationship problems. Part 1

Separation, divorce and problems of a sexual nature are discussed in this module. In addition, relevant counselling techniques, strategies and observations will be identified and described. There are many complexities, so various case studies are discussed to develop a process rather than finding solutions to every specific issue and conundrum.

 

Module 10: Specific relationship problems. Part 2

Career and workplace problems, bullying, violent relationships, and other related issues are discussed in this module. In addition, relevant counselling techniques, strategies and observations will be identified and explained to address specific work-related problems.
