This year is a foundation year in person-centred philosophy, theory and applications which is appropriate for those who have no previous experience of the practice of therapy or those who already have a therapy qualification based in another theoretical orientation or tradition. Whilst forming a foundation year to the Diploma in person centred counselling & Psychotherapy, it stands alone, and has proved a useful introduction to and foundation in the approach for those in a variety of professions.
Congruent with the principles of person-centred approaches to education, the precise content of the course is discussed and negotiated with students. Thus, we view this syllabus as a starting point for discussion and the organisation of study in the Units:
The principles of the person-centred approach:
The six necessary and sufficient conditions of change:
The philosophy and history of the approach, the context of the approach and its scope, as well as developments in the approach.
