Client Directed Outcome Informed Counseling

Rationale for assessment: The counselling world has a history of promoting traditions, theories, and fads about what enhances counselling effectiveness. This assessment aims to assist students to gain an outcome research informed perspective about what improves counsellor  performance and client outcomes. Students will also be able to describe what CDOI  work is and document the evidence that supports this approach.
