Certificate in Therapeutic Communication

Why take this course?

This dynamic course is designed to provide a comprehensive and practical understanding of Therapeutic Communication. It teaches a person-centered approach to communicating effectively with others, offering the student a clinical and pastoral perspective on client care. The course uses a number of communication models, to help identify communication skills and promote positive thinking as a means of enhancing the therapeutic process.

Therapeutic communication is an essential element in the healing process and, although not all people want to be counsellors, all
caregivers and practitioners need to be able to communicate
effectively with their clients.

Therapeutic communication is about providing companionship, emotional support and information about solving life’s problems. It is about how to move from understanding the person to putting that understanding into words. The aim of therapeutic communication is to examine what the therapist can say that can contribute to the process of  healing and change.

The course is ideal for those who already have some therapeutic and/or leadership experience. Students enroling on this course may be nurses, allied health professionals, social workers, pastors, teachers, life coaches, managers and leaders.

This is an outstanding course and is suitable for all types of professionals working with individuals and groups who wish to further develop communication skills and foster relationships with others.

Therapeutic communication is at the ‘cutting edge’ of client care.

The course is designed for six months part-time study, although students may spread their studies over a full year if they wish.
