Date/Time: Tuesday, October 22, 12:00pm – 1:00pm PT

Presenter: Tannis Goddard, President of Training Innovations

In this webinar, Tannis Goddard will explore how text-based communication technologies can be used as an effective mechanism for providing Career Development Services. Whether you use email, Linked-In, other online group spaces or structured online interventions, understanding how to create a mattering climate and develop a working alliance through a-synchronous communication is a key factor for effectively connecting with and supporting Clients.

  • Review key research perspectives about the use of text-based counselling in therapeutic counselling and career development services
  • Consider the factors that create mattering climate and how these factors translate into the online environment
  • Identify online strategies for building and sustaining a productive working alliance
