Drug and Alcohol Counselling Placement - Year 2

Module code: AE2226

Module co-ordinator: Dr Tony Priest

You will undertake an approved, supervised counselling placement during which you will use your counselling skills with clients who have drug or alcohol problems. Over the course of the year, you will have at least 90 hours of client contact. Through this work placement you will gain experience and skills in understanding how agencies working with drug and alcohol clients are organised. You will work within the constraints of an agency that has its own protocol, code of ethics and code of conduct.
