This module we will study the counselor as a person and as a professional. We’ll also study the concepts of critical thinking and comparing/contrasting in developing conclusions. This is your opportunity to explore one area of counseling using these skills.
Using strong critical thinking, evaluate the accuracy of the following statement:
“Suggestion and persuasion are parts of the therapeutic process.”
Is there a difference?
How can these concepts influence how you facilitate change in a therapeutic way?
How can ethics play a role when employing these two concepts?
Be sure to use references to support your conclusions and observations and proper APA documentation!
The Text we are using is; Theory and Practice of Counseling and Psychotherapy. By Gerald Corey, Ninth Edition
