This course is divided into two modules designed to provide students with basic skills needed for 1) interviewing for intake and assessment purposes and engaging clients in a therapeutic relationship, and 2) application of evidence-based counseling using cognitive behavioral therapy (cbt). The course will employ brief didactic presentations, discussion of readings, video review, and role-play. Students will have the opportunity to conduct a clinical interview and a brief course of cbt with an actor playing the role of the client. These sessions will be video recorded. Evaluation by self, peers, and instructor will occur. Student performance will be evaluated to determine competency for entry-level practice and specific detail for student remediation will be provided if needed.
