Counselling Laboratory at Colombo Institute of Research and Psychology

Adding one more exclusive feature to the list of the learning facilities provided by the institute, Colombo Institute of Research and Psychology (CIRP) is now equipped with a state of the art counselling laboratory.

This is the first of its kind in Sri Lanka, and is expected to take learning psychology to a whole new level by giving students to simulate counseling sessions under the supervision of a senior psychologist. Counselling is a challenging profession and requires high level of professionalism and skills to succeed. The aim of the counselling laboratory is to give students a more realistic training compared to less ecologically valid role playing methods.

CIRP decided to improve its facilities after identifying the increased demand they have for their programmes. According to the management, the increased demand is mainly due to the recognition that CIRP has achieved within a short period of time. It is already recognized by Tertiary and Vocational Education Commission to award several diplomas in psychology. Apart from the local authorities, both EDEXCEL (UK) and Cambridge University International Examinations (UK) have recognized CIRP as one of their international centre. Currently more than two hundred students are studying at CIRP for both EDEXCEL and Cambridge psychology examinations.

CIRP has attracted many individuals in the corporate sector to follow General and Organizational psychology programmes to add psychological means and tools to their profession. Recognizing the quality of the academic programmes run by CIRP, Ladies' College Department of Vocational Studies entered into an academic partnership with CIRP to conduct a joint programme in child and adolescent psychology. CIRP is also in agreement with Ladies' College, Colombo to handle their London Advanced Level psychology department as well.

Academic staff of the Psychology division of CIRP exceeds 30 with both permanent and visiting lecturers. With its modern curriculum and facilities, it is able to provide international level psychology education for Sri Lankan students.
