For Living and Working in a Diverse Society
An introductory 30-hour course
This course provides an introduction to BCPC's experiential teaching style and core values for people considering applying to our Foundation Certificate. It is designed to help people increase their skills in listening and responding well, and to embrace cultural difference. It should especially help those considering a career change to “test the waters” and experience the field first hand.
The course runs in Bath each year, starting in the Spring. It is usually a 3-hour weekday evening course, running for 10 weeks. Each session will include an experientially taught seminar, skills practice and an open discussion group.
The Listening Skills course explores cross-cultural differences and needs - those who work or would like to work in a multi-cultural setting will find it of particular interest. BCPC is keen to encourage individuals from minority ethnic groups to attend this course as there are very few trained counsellors to meet the needs of these communities. A bursary is available to help with the course fees for individuals from minority ethnic groups who might otherwise have difficulty in meeting training costs.
Wednesday evenings in Bath (10 sessions)
Times: 6.30pm – 9.30pm. Dates: 15th May 2013 – 17th July 2013 inclusive
