Placement is what made this course closer to what it needed to be so luckily I had two great placements. We needed better quality content on counselling and varying therapy techniques. Teachers were mostly passionate, intelligent and experienced however the content delivery was at times quite poor. Intensive times were often not used to their full potential which was my biggest disappointment. Assignment tasks were mostly appropriate and the feedback was mostly helpful. Overall I feel that my foundation as a social worker is enough but this is also complimented by my undergraduate degree in psychology.
