Level 7 (Post Graduate) writing or Higher Order Thinking is
an important part of psychotherapy or counselling training. Describing theory and your understanding and subsequent application to practice are vital components of these essays. To attain Level 7 the markers are looking to see analysis, synthesis and evaluation. This workshop looks at these key elements and how to approach them:
Summarising – but then critique a theory, your practice, your development.
Considering – think about and then recommend alternatives; and then appraise these options
Comparing – compare and contrast your differing approaches and recommend others.
Evaluating – your practice, draw conclusions, integrate with theory, evaluate and justify.
The key outcomes from the workshop are:
Developing the confidence to write at level 7, post-graduate level.
Understanding what needs to be included for this level and how to structure an essay.
