The microskills of challenging and confrontation are given prominence and participants are expected to reflect on their practice and the appropriateness of challenging and confronting clients. The candidate will develop basic counselling skills for future application to reproduction counselling. Ethical issues for counselling practice, with a particular focus on the ethical dimensions regarding reproductive medicine, are examined.
