In addition, the course includes an interviewing laboratory, where students will have the opportunity to conduct counseling interviews and basic assessments with research participants who will play the role of "clients." Infused throughout the course is an emphasis on empirically supported treatments and components of therapy, working within a scientist-practitioner framework, ethical considerations, and the cultural contexts in which people seek and receive help.
