This course is designed to acquaint students with basic interviewing and counseling techniques. Interviewing is an essential form of fact gathering and is performed by everyone in many different settings. It is also an art, and the most effective interviews are done by those who are knowledgeable and skilled in the art. Similarly, everyone has counseled others, but here again there are techniques for counseling most effectively. We will explore those techniques and practice applying them in recorded simulations throughout the class.
