Depression, addiction, anxiety, suicide, family breakdown, and other mental distress are increasing in societies throughout the world.
The College is releasing this Counseling Assessment as a contribution to the mental health and healing of friends and family members.
The free download is available at https://www.box.net/
A full explanation of the assessment is found in the College manual "Effective Counseling Skills: the practical wording of therapeutic statements and processes" by Daniel Keeran, MSW, http://www.amazon.com/
The questionnaire helps relate current problems to the recent and distant past in the reader's life drawing upon medical, social, occupational, and family experiences.
As the questions are answered, the reader gains an awareness of causes and possible repeating patterns from early life. Everyone has a tendency to repeat and perpetuate aspects of painful unresolved conflicts and losses. These losses may be related to health, types of abuse, or parental loss of caring affecting adult life and relationships.
On completing the assessment, the reader may want to seek counseling from a trained professional.
The College mission is to train the public and working professional counselors in the use of counseling skills and processes. To Register for a Certificate course go to http://www.collegemhc.com
