Welcome

Welcome to Edition 95 of Institute Inbrief.

 

In this edition we finalise our series exploring the emotional wave associated with a sudden job loss. We also have a Case Study involving a client experiencing mid life crisis; an insightful interview with our Associate Lecturer, Anda Davies; and a range of updates, opportunities and information in counselling.

 

Enjoy your reading!

The course that fits into YOUR lifestyle

 

AIPC's accredited and nationally recognised Diploma of Professional Counselling is designed so that you determine the manner and pace you study. You study entirely at your own pace (except of course if you're receiving a government benefit such as Austudy) and you can start at any time, graduating in only 18-months (even less if you fast track).

 

Not only can you set the pace you study, you also determine the mode you want to study. You can study Externally (at home with phone and email access to our counselling tutors), In-Class, Online or Any Combination... all the time fully supported by our huge national team throughout our 8 Student Support Centres.

 

  • External learning means you can complete your entire course from the comfort of your home (or office, or overseas, or virtually anywhere!).

  • In-Class learning is a classroom forum where you learn with other students from a qualified lecturer. Classes are available in most main cities, at flexible times. In-Class is a great way for you to accelerate your learning, interact with other students and stay highly motivated.

  • Online learning allows you to complete your learning entirely via your PC. You still receive all the high quality hardcopy resources (so you don't miss out on anything!), but you'll access all your learning materials and complete assessments online.

  • Any Combination. Of course you do not have to stick with one learning method throughout your studies. You are welcome to use whichever method suits your needs and desires at the time. Whatever is most convenient!

For further information about the Diploma and Study Modes, please click here or contact your closest Student Support Centre.

Article: Counselling with Difference

Published: Edition 29

 

One of the foremost challenges facing counselling professionals is to understand the complex role that client diversity plays in their work. In counselling, each client's needs and objectives need to be considered and used to guide the counselling process. These needs vary for each individual according to factors such as personality, culture, gender and age.

 

It is vital that counsellors working with issues of difference recognise the unique needs of their client and plan intervention accordingly. The counsellor must decide on the approach that will provide better responsiveness from the client, and therefore lead to a constructive outcome.
