Description

Masters in Social Work (Counselling) would provide both academic learning and professional education and training in Counselling, extending beyond theoretical knowledge. This programme is tailored to suit counselors working in a wide range of organizational and community contexts as well as individuals in a family. With the fast changing social scenario, the problems being faced by people across the board are numerous. Unlike in the western world, Counselling services are very inadequate in India. There is a growing demand for counselors in schools, corporate sector, health care setting, social and welfare sectors, correctional settings etc. However, schools/universities where Counselling course/ programme are taught in India are very few. There is a good potential for employment in government as well as NGO sectors. There is an urgent need for specially trained counselors to handle the stress of employees working with call centres, corporate sectors, families, family courts, correctional settings, school, universities and educational institutions, rehabilitation centres, refugee camps, institutions for the differently abled, aged, child care and adoption centres, family planning, voluntary Counselling and testing centres, rural sectors especially where farmers are driven to commit suicide, de-addiction centres etc. MSW(C) Programme would be offered initially through one or two study centres under each Regional Centre. The programme can be taken only through activated study centres or special study centres through each Regional Centre. This Programme is being offered only in English. For Field Work in the MSW (Counselling) programme much focus is given on specialization in Counselling and 40 percent weightage is given for the practicum.
