Dissertation Practice Placement Personal Development & Culture Psychology within Counselling

Assessment method

Throughout the teaching an emphasis will be made on the context and application of theory to practice, the development of an ethical, anti-oppressive and value-based approach, to inform practice with clients. The nature of the profession further relies upon the practitioner’s ability to utilise reflexive and reflective practice. This will be embedded into specific personal development essays, experiential tasks and into skills practice. The personal development assessment will further demonstrate a critical awareness of self, regarding culture and diversity. Assessments such as case studies, reports and a dissertation will further demonstrate the ability to critically analyse contemporary counselling research.
