This module consists of 2 distinct parts, which will prepare you for the intensive modules later in the school.
- Sexuality & Gender
These two so called half modules are worth half a credit each. The intensive will feature both these topics again, to go deeper and to go into application, for 1 credit each. See the overview of modules and credits in Module 1.
This part of the module teaches you some basic coaching principles, to lay the foundation for the intensive module on Coaching. This topic consists of 1.5 credit and is divided into a primary half module, exposing the student to the literature and principles associated with Motivational Interviewing. The second part (1 credit) will be accomplished during the intensive part of the course and significant emphasis will be given at this stage to practical application of the theoretical model.
Learning outcomes for part 1:
- Familiarisation with the theory of MI (Motivational Interviewing)
- Evaluating the application of the MI model in real situations
- Identifying the learning needs to practice MI competently
Sexuality & Gender
This part of the module has as purpose/outcome to gain a basic biblical understanding to use as a framework for looking at and describing Gender development and analysing Gender ideologies. We will use this framework as a starting point for our Intensive module on this same topic.
