Community Counselor Course
About the Program
Do you want to help high-risk populations and under-served communities through counseling? Enroll in our Community Counselor Course, a six-month training program beginning every January and July. As a result of the Covid-19 crisis, CCC is now being held online with virtual meetings. You’ll build a solid base of counseling skills alongside case workers from non-profits and government agencies, community workers and school counselors.
Real World Mentors
Classes are facilitated by a faculty of professional therapists who assist the paraprofessional counselor in understanding the counseling relationship. Boundary issues and communication skills are explored through role-play and interactive dialogue. Topic-related issues are also explored. CCC provides training, supervision and support for paraprofessional counselors who are already involved, or are interested in helping the high-risk population and under-served communities.
When We Meet
Class meets once a week on Zoom (or a similar teleconference service) Fridays, 9:30 AM – 1 PM for six months. The first 1.5 hours is a hands-on learning session, followed by a 1.5 hour process group session. Learning sessions teach the basics of counseling through role play, dialogue and in-depth discussions. Process groups are smaller, more intimate sessions in which participants experience counseling in a safe group environment where they can express frustrations, ask questions, seek comfort or just talk about a difficult issue they are facing.
