Criminology and Counselling Skills

Teaching takes place at the Parkgate Road Campus. At Chester we offer you a dynamic and diverse course. We explore the relationship between criminological theories and criminal justice policies and practices. You will also look at explanations for crime and antisocial behaviour and how the police and courts deal with such matters. Additionally, you will study the role of punishment and the secure estate, and investigate crimes of the powerless and crimes of the powerful. The issue of human rights is integral to our analyses. Although our course will not train you as a therapeutic counsellor, it offers you the chance to gain highly developed skills to help others. On completion of the course you will have developed your confidence to work effectively within a team, and gained a vital range of human relationship skills, which will enable you to respond professionally to the complexities of concerns that occur within a workplace environment.
