Throughout this course, you have been working on your Theories of Counseling Chart and adding to it each unit. This is a document that you will use throughout your program, specifically in your Pre-Practicum Residency – Track 2 course and fieldwork courses. By now, you have developed a foundational understanding of the philosophical assumptions, key figures, key concepts, and intervention strategies for the theories. Adding to this theories chart in your future courses and studies will solidify your knowledge and prepare you for your fieldwork. Furthermore, it can be a valuable resource during preparation for the counseling exam that you will take as part of the licensure process.
To continue to prepare for the licensure exam, in this unit you will also take a quiz with questions that resemble ones used on the National Counselor Exam (NCE). This will allow you to test your objective knowledge of the theories, identify weak areas, and plan a strategy for future studies.
To successfully complete this learning unit, you will be expected to:
1. Post your completed Theories of Counseling Chart.
2. Identify a theory that most resonates with you, establishing your personal theoretical foundation.
