Counseling is gaining popularity not only as an intervention but also as a viable profession that requires a sound academic theoretical framework and in-depth knowledge of various therapeutic interventions. Unfortunately there are self-professed practitioners who believe that a few personal skills and advice are sufficient to deliver counseling services. This, we believe, is very harmful because when dealing with psychological disturbances, practitioners need to have a solid foundation in counseling theories, a set of well developed skills and mastery in a variety of therapeutic intervention strategies. Keeping this need in mind, Chennai Counselors’ Foundation (CCF) has produced a video ‘Skills in Professional Counseling’ which would be a useful guiding tool to students, beginners in the field and those planning to take psychological counseling as a profession.
