What is the course about?

This course aims to encourage students to have build awareness of diversity within the helping relationship.

Clients want to be seen as a whole person, they want their race, culture and identity to be acknowledged.

This course helps students to address difference and diversity in a respectful and confident way.

The facilitator will share skills and expertise with students to support them to understand how their own cultural heritage plays a role in the helping relationship. We have more in common that what separates us, by addressing this helpers can work towards building an open, transparent relationship and break down barriers.

The facilitator will share skills, tools and techniques that will help students to have a rounded culturally competent perspective, when interacting in everyday life or within a future career as a counsellor.

What will we cover?

- Diversity awareness within the helper relationship
- How to confidently talk about race, culture and identity
