CNGC 625 - Enhancing Counseling and Prevention through Technology

(3 credits)
Prerequisite: CNGC 582 or consent of instructor
This advanced-level course is designed for professional counselors and advanced-level graduate students in counseling who are interested in increasing their knowledge and skill in the ways technology can be used to develop, deliver and evaluate counseling and prevention services, materials and programs. The course will build upon the student’s earlier courses and experiences and will primarily focus on competency and skill-building to increase student effectiveness in this area. Emphasis will be on readily available software applications whose use can be modified to enhance and customize counseling interventions, as well as those which are integral to the functioning of the school counselor and in which familiarity and initial competency is expected by school systems. Topics will include use of the Internet, scheduling programs, record keeping systems, presentation and publishing software applications, career and college exploration, developing customized computer-generated counseling materials, electronic mail, data management, photo/graphic editing and importing, multimedia applications and Web pages/Web sites. Legal and ethical issues related to the use of technology, as well as diversity issues will be threaded throughout the course. All topics will be explored from a guidance and counseling perspective. Much of the work for the course will take place within population-specific small groups.
