Survey of Counseling Theories explores the historical origins and evolution of contemporary models of psychotherapy and counseling, and current professional research and practice in the field. Students learn various intervention modalities that may be applied to similar client presentations, and gain insights on how to tailor the most appropriate intervention for a specific client, and develop his/her personal paradigm for counseling. Spiritual issues are often an integral but subtle part of counseling process; students will enhance their abilities to recognize and address these issues from a Pagan perspective.
