Jun 05, 2023

Course registration is now open for the fall semester. Consult our fall registration advisory for instructions and more information, and talk to your advisor about adding this exciting UWW Interdisciplinary Studies fall course offering to your degree plan:

UWW 304 Introduction to Counseling

"This course will introduce students to many of the core concepts of counseling, and by association psychotherapy. To do so, we will explore many of the basic 'helping' skills associated with empathic responsive listening, theoretical principles, and the integration of theory and practice. This course will also emphasize the importance of cultural humility when practicing with diverse client populations … The material covered in this course is designed to orient undergraduate students interested in pursuing an advanced degree in counseling or psychotherapy to some of the fundamental concepts and skills required of masters and doctoral level professionals within the field (Clinical Social Workers, Psychologists, Marriage and Family Therapists, etc.)"
