MICROcounseling Skills with Prof. Harold Engen

In a complete set of four 60 min videos, author-trainer-professor Harold Engen is your host, guiding you through a comprehensive series of programs that breaks down the counseling process into it's quintessential (micro) skills. Ideally structured for either classroom or workshop use, MICROcounseling "demystifies" the concept that the counseling process cannot isolate individual skills for training or review. "We're going to break counseling down in the microcounseling model as a case and teach individual skills...during the series in order for the (viewer) to put it into their own personal style", says Engen. Following Allen Ivey's philosophy of microcounseling, Engen tries to make everyone "develop their own personal style and become more intentional." Engen professes that each counselor should have a "reservoir of skills available so at any one given time they can draw upon the appropriate skill and should be intentional with the client to help the client work through and resolve (their) particular situation." Crediting Ivey's microcounseling mode, Engen then focuses on one skill or technique in each of 10 programs as he explores such topics as Observing, Questioning, Empathy, Focusing, Interpretation, Confrontation, and Integration. In a comfortable and engaging manner Professor Engen outlines these and other microcounseling skills in a pyramid model of: * Attending skills * Responding skills * Influencing skills MICROcounseling - 10 programs of basic counseling skills, rock solid information, rich with the dialogs and simulations that make learning successful and enjoyable. "Hands -on" exercises flow naturally from the demonstrations in these videos. Whether you're teaching, training or reviewing, MICROcounseling is core material. A must for new counselors and counselors-to-be.
