Course enables learners to understand essential elements of interaction with other
human beings with whom they are working, and to apply therapeutic principles in clinical settings with people who have speech, language, and hearing difficulties. Learners are also able to identify which areas of counseling are outside their scope of practice. More specifically, this course is intended to: provide the learner with a broad overview of contemporary counseling approaches and issues; and apply these issues to the speech and hearing clinician. In addition we touch upon family systems and how they are affected by the presence of a communication disorder. The course involves formal lectures and group discussion. The course also offers unstructured time for the class members to use as they see fit. Only open to CSD, CSD: Lang&LitDisabilities, CSD:EarlyChild Intervention majors.
