Primary Skills for Online Counseling Workshop
A counselling workshop that has been developed to assist in the training of lay counselors, who need to deal with troubled often traumatized people online, in their work and in their communities.
In South Africa our first line of response to people in need of psycho-social support cannot come from the relative limited number of social workers, psychologists or professional counselors. Fortunately we do have an army of non-professional counselors available. Some of them had extensive training, while others have had only a few days of training and some had none at all. While these helpers may not be able to treat deep-set and long standing emotional problems, they do have considerable compassion and humanity to draw on.
Main aim of the course
When used as a whole the course provides a basic counselling course for those who have never been trained. It is intended for participants who assist people in a variety of situations, but who are not registered professionals such as qualified psychologists and social workers.
It will be useful for counselors in a variety of counseling contexts including, but not limited to, schools, NGO’s, Faith-based organisations, the South African Police Service, Hospitals, Clinics , Counselling Call centers, Sports Centers, Education and training facilities, Government and Health and Social Services. It should develop participants who know their scope of practice, behave ethically in a counselling context, conform to minimum standards and know when to refer a client.
