Unformatted text preview: • California Baptist University, Online & Professional Studies Syllabus PSY 422, Theories of Counseling, 3 Units COURSE DESCRIPTION This course is meant to expose students to contemporary theories of therapeutic counseling. Students will survey the various theoretical orientations of therapeutic counseling, the underlying psychological principles of therapeutic counseling, and the techniques and interventions utilized within therapeutic counseling. ONLINE LEARNING CBU’s Division of Online and Professional Studies (OPS) specializes in distance education” for working adults and others who need a flexible learning schedule. It offers university courses and degree programs both fully online and in “hybrid” format (partly online and partly on-ground). Each “ course week” begins on a Monday and ends on Sunday. Students should log in several times throughout the week to participate in online discussions and other activities. OPS recommends that students complete the various readings and assignments in the order in which they are presented, but the format does allow some flexibility for students to modify their approach or even to work ahead. Active participation in every assignment and every online discussion is expected. Students should be careful of any assignments that have specific “opening” or “closing” times, and they should regularly consult the Course Schedule to ensure that they complete all work in a timely manner. Students access all course materials via the Blackboard 9 site, which includes minimum system requirements and orientation tutorials designed to equip class members for online study.
