The latest meeting of the Guidance & Counselling / practitioner forum took place on Tuesday 21st October 

All three years of students on the Guidance and Counselling programme at Northumbria University  were invited together with local practitioners involved with guidance and counselling work.

The format of the session was

  1.  A short presentation on Pluralistic Approaches to Guidance and Counselling by Peter Beven. This is based on work undertaken on a recent sabbatical research
  2. Research / practice round up with contributions from staff and students
  3. Discussions in small groups about specific  guidance and counselling issues
  4. There was also discussion about volunteer opportunities with agencies and organisations, specifically Barnardos.
  5. Also some very good news about professional recognition of the guidance and counselling programme!
