This certificate provides counselling training from a constructivist perspective. Constructivist career counselling (based on the work of the late Dr. Peavy) is a philosophical approach to career counselling that addresses the idea that the most important career for a person is the career of his or her own life. It takes a holistic look at the individual and accepts that we are each capable of constructing our own lives through recognition of what brings meaning to our lives. It is an approach that is culture-based and respectful and that applies equally well to all age groups. While the focus is on career counselling, the philosophical tenets are applicable to counselling in general.
