  • Description

    The screening concept is based on the principle that the total person and all the major aspects of personhood can be assessed to find possible problem areas.  This can make it possible for care givers to help an individual to grow in those specific areas or to treat that individual on the road to healing.

    In these study units we introduce the student to all aspects of screening for physical, mental and lifestyle situations.  The emotional aspect can be screened to find personal or interpersonal problems affecting the individual’s life and wellness.  A troubled childhood can have a profoundly negative effect on a mature person’s wellness throughout life and if it can be detected and intervention be made, it can radically change someone’s life.  Lifestyle has an enormous effect on a person’s wellness.  Where there is dysfunctional behaviour screening may be able to pick it up and help the individual to change that behaviour. 

    By mastering the content of the three study units the counsellor will be able to drastically increase his/her professional competence.
