Training Video Resources
These video clips were put together as part of the 2008 Called to Care course. They are available to download and use on the understanding that the course has been withdrawn by Careconfidential who no longer wish their name to be associated with them. As mentioned in the disclaimer at the beginning of each video, they were designed as a teaching aid. They should not be viewed as models of good practice, as some are purposely depicting bad practice in the counselling room.
