“Driving To Unknown” – Teaching Counselling Psychology At Universities

The article outlines some major current issues of teaching and training for counselling psychology, in other words — theory and practice of psychological counselling. Well-developed British model of teaching and training for counselling psychology is described and critically analyzed. Some questions and considerations regarding this model are formulated. Some current issues of counselling psychology are discussed, namely integrative approaches in counselling psychology, and philosophical and ethical basis of this rather new theoretical field in psychology. Specificity of a therapist/counselling psychologist and client/patient encounter is outlined.

Keywords: British model of teaching and training for counselling psychology; integrative approaches in counselling; ethics and values in counselling psychology; therapeutic encounter

Column: Workshop and methods
