Relationship or couples counselling has gained popularity over the last twenty years or so, possibly due to the complexities of modern life. This course examines the basic phases or stages of relationship counselling, and gives specific information on separation, divorce, violent relationships and problems based on sexual difficulties. In addition to the counselling approaches, various working models and theories specific to this field will be explored as well as the concepts of meta-communication, genograms and reflective practice. Specific attention will be given to psychodynamic, cognitive behavioural and person-centred approaches, which will give students a fuller working knowledge and understanding of advanced counselling skills. In specialist counselling fields, these advanced skills are necessary in order to be able to recognise and deal with the complex range of client needs, together with being able to understand the origins of these particular emotions and possible physiological factors. The course is concerned with relationships and couples, for example those in an intimate relationship. Narration will avoid being gender-specific, therefore the words 'partner' or 'couple' will be used wherever possible.
