Course


Hope & the Helping Relationship
Educational Psychology 446/546
 
This course looks closely at hope as a concept and examines its influence and role in professional helping interactions such as counselling, education, and other professional settings. Hope is a vital and foundational aspect of human experience and growth. Literature drawn primarily from the fields of counselling psychology, education, health care, and positive psychology provide a multidisciplinary foundation for this course. This literature focuses primarily on hope and related concepts and skills in applied settings, e.g., counsellor-client relationships, teacher-student-parent relationships, collegial working relationships, and self-care.  Students will obtain foundational knowledge of hope research, theory, and practice and will spend additional energy and time on an area of their own specific professional interest. This is a lively and interactive course where students will learn research-supported principles and practices for working with hope in applied settings.
