Hello!

Intothediploma

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: Inside Love

Published: Edition 32

 

There are many kinds of love which are induced by a varied collection of motives. Romantic love is probably the most intricate of them all, and there are many reasons for that. First, romantic love does not seem to follow many of our decision-making rules: you can fall in love with anyone, at anytime, and without any precedents.

 

Second, the concept of romantic love has been developed, propagated and nurtured, becoming to some extent intrinsically related to the very meaning of human life. Third, and maybe most important of all, love generates an astounding rush of adrenaline - a rapturous sensation of being out of control, like endeavouring in a great and unique experience.

 

Love seems to derive from a blend of environmental and genetic factors. Before the scientific study of love originated around the 70s, much of our perspective on the concept was based in the work of poets, artists and philosophers. Albeit love remains a complex matter, there are some cues as to why it is such an appealing one.
