About Our Students

The class is a mix of about 25 international and domestic students from a wide array of backgrounds. This course, Advanced Counselling Skills, is a requirement for the Addictions Recovery Practitioner Program. All students entering the program already hold a credential in a helping field like nursing, social work, medicine, etc. The official course description can be found on our website at: https://www.norquest.ca/cal/2018-2019/course/ADRP1015-advanced-supportive-counselling-skills.aspx

 

About the Course

The course description is given below for your convenience:

"Build upon foundational helping, interviewing, and assessment skills by focusing on approaches most relevant to substance use and mental health fields. Through simulation activities, refine your skills in the use of addiction assessment instruments, Transtheoretical model of change and motivational interviewing, and be introduced to other therapeutic and peer support approaches."

 

Parking

I have emailed parking at NorQuest to begin the process of securing your parking for up to 3 vehicles. I will update you on this when I have more information.

More details to follow on this.

As of November 14th, we have been advised that vehicle make, model and license # will be required to allow for 3 vehicles. Contact Cordell prior to the event to ensure these details are communicated to the parking coordinator at Norquest College. The event is on a Saturday and that will allow us to find free parking quite easily.
