Students entering the fields of counseling and social work need to be able to help others work through their emotions, develop strategies for coping with difficult circumstances, and obtain the social services they need—each of which requires communication and decision-making skills that can’t always be picked up from just reading textbooks. Ideal for counseling students in master’s-level and beginning Ph.D. programs, M.S.W. students, and undergraduate counseling and guidance programs, the Counseling & Social Work Collection helps prepare students for the challenges they will face when they start meeting clients.
With clips from actual counseling sessions with patients, videos featuring the founders of narrative therapy and other counseling approaches, and titles on the theory and practice of social work, this collection will give students the grounding they need to help the people they will work with every day.
This collection is available as a single-subject collection or as part of the Films On Demand Master Academic Video Package.
All programs are segmented into multiple pedagogical clips, convenient for intermittent use during classroom lectures or as assigned classwork.
From teaching the “soft skills,” such as time management and mitigating stress, that can boost academic success, to warning about alcohol and drugs, peer pressure, and other dangers inherent to becoming a young adult, this collection covers life lessons that aren’t always taught in class, but that can be just as important in preparing for life after graduation.
This collection is available as a single-subject collection or as part of the Films On Demand Master Career & Technical Education Video Package.
All titles are segmented into short, pedagogical clips, ideal for intermittent use during classroom lectures. For classwork viewing, students can choose to watch an entire film without interruption. Titles within the collection are sorted across distinct, browsable subject categories, enabling refined searches for available titles in specific topic areas.
