Practical Ethics Training for Counsellors and Psychotherapists

Practical Ethics for Counsellors and Psychotherapists was developed in partnership with PACFA to address unanticipated and often complex ethical issues faced by both new and experienced practitioners.  The course is open to all Counsellors and Psychotherapists who are seeking to build skills and competencies in ethical practice.

Participants complete the course at their own pace over a 2 week period using the Moodle e-learning system. There are 4 interactive sessions which run at scheduled times and participants will need to participate in the majority of these interactive sessions. Teaching and learning approaches include audio-visual materials, case studies, recorded lectures, online communication threads and facilitated discussions.
