Counseling Education Management


Presenting Simulationiq Counseling by Education Management Solutions

Are you a counselor educator? Are you employed by a professional counselor education program or private counseling practice? Then you undoubtedly agree that great counselors come from great educational backgrounds.

Role-play, or counseling simulation, is an important part of graduate-level counselor education. Counseling students work in pairs or groups and act out relevant interactions between counselors and clients.

With simulation, educators are able to mimic mental health conditions and healthcare procedures so that professional counselors are trained to act appropriately within real life settings. Methods of hands-on experience within realistic settings are the main features of counseling simulation, and before embarking on real life mental healthcare applications, counseling students reach skill mastery. Administrators make assessments of students' simulation activities and grade on their ability to learn and improve delivery of skills, as well as whether they have reached competency.

It's also important that students begin to hone their skills by working with real patients. A school or university may have an on-campus clinic which provides free or greatly discounted counseling services to the university community and/or local public – it's in this environment that counseling students will begin to truly build and refine their counseling skills.

But how can educators and administrators keep track of role-play/simulation sessions? How can patient data be kept secure when the sessions are real?
