Training Center was established on October 9, 2007. The Center is created for people interested to be professionals in consulting area and practical trainers, and in general for those who wants to change his life and himself to better.
All the programs on which we conduct classes – are based on experience and are time-tested. The staff are practicing professionals with experience of at least 15 years in the field of counseling, coaching, psychotherapy, Ph.D.s and Doctors of Science.
More than 400 students graduated in 8 years. More than 30 percent of graduates have opened their own psychological centers, employment agencies, counseling offices, private psychological treatment practicies.
The Center has been developing a new model of training of practical psychologists, based on the goal of integrating as close as possible training and practice, personal and professional growth of students.
Special attention is on practical training which requires substantial restructuring of the relationship between students and teachers. We focus on creation of subject-object relations, resulting in shortening the distance between a teacher and a student and the establishment as a result of trusting relationship. This is due to the fact that the development of practical psychology requires not only knowledge of the effective methods, but also personal training for a psychologist and a person themselves are an integral part of the method and those who exercise these methods.
In teaching psychological skills training four blocks were withdrawn: personal, general, special and private, and professional. However, such training is not necessarily regarded as consistent movement on the mentioned levels, it can be applied at many other places.
On October 1, 2015 Training Centre changed its name to "Research and Education Center of Practical Psychology, Ethnic Psychology and Intercultural Communication: East-West".
