Fifteen years ago, I began teaching speech-language pathologists, audiologists, and rehabilitation counselors how to use counseling techniques in their professional practice. I am a couple and family therapist and my interest in teaching students in communicative disorders evolved out of collaboration with Jim Andrews, a speech-language pathologist. Together, we developed a model for including family members in the treatment of speech-language disorders (Andrews & Andrews, 2000). As we worked with students, clients, and their families, we came to understand that counseling techniques were integral to the success of our work.
