Training set for counselling curriculum for PNG

The PNG Counsellors’ Association has invited a group of expert trainers and counsellors to come together to develop a counselling course specific to PNG; 27 people have been invited to this 4 day workshop.

The Australian Counselling Association in conjunction with the Australian Institute of Professional Counsellors have freely donated a number of subjects used in the Australian National Counselling curriculum to the committee to adapt to the PNG context.

PNG CA is keen to see professional counselling being provided for by well trained, qualified and certified counsellors in PNG who can provide counselling for various counselling needs.

Developing this curriculum will up-skill the counsellors to better serve people with various forms of counselling needs.

The workshop is schedule to take place on August 14th – 17th, at Lamana Hotel in Port Moresby with participants expected from all around Papua New Guinea.
