Certificate in Counselling Women applies contemporary feminist theory
to the practice of counselling. The program develops basic counselling
skills with a particular emphasis on acquiring crisis intervention
The program is ideal for professionals and volunteers—crisis
workers, social workers, family life educators, adult educators,
teachers, and vocational counsellors—who will acquire the skills
to help women solve specific and everyday problems.
Students holding a Diploma in Social Work should choose electives
in consultation with an AU advisor to ensure the electives meet
the requirements of the UCCW, BPA Human Services and B. Health Administration.

from other institutions. The certificate can be transferred to other programs at AU and other
universities if the courses fit the requirements at the receiving
institution. For details, please contact the Program Coordinator.

Program Plan to assist you.
