DEVELOPMENT OF DORMITORY STAFF AS SUB-PROFESSIONAL COUNSELORS.
JACKSON, RONALD E.A.
STAFF MEMBERS OF RESIDENCE HALLS AT THE UNIVERSITY OF NORTH DAKOTA WERE GIVEN COUNSELING-ORIENTED, IN-SERVICE TRAINING TO MEET THE EDUCATIONAL AND DEVELOPMENTAL NEEDS OF RESIDENT STUDENTS. TRAINING MATERIALS AND TECHNIQUES WERE DEVELOPED TO PROVIDE SUB-PROFESSIONAL COUNSELING SKILLS TO 12 HEAD RESIDENTS AND 12 UNDERGRADUATE ASSISTANTS. THERE WAS AN EQUAL NUMBER OF MALE AND FEMALE PARTICIPANTS. COUNSELING-RELATED KNOWLEDGE AND ATTITUDES OF PARTICIPANTS WERE APPRAISED AFTER TRAINING, AS WERE CHANGES IN JOB PERFORMANCE. ALL PARTICIPANTS TOOK THE STRONG VOCATIONAL INTEREST BLANK AND THE EDWARDS PERSONAL PREFERENCE SCHEDULE. APPROXIMATELY 20 2 HOUR TRAINING SESSIONS WERE HELD. SESSIONS COVERED THE FOLLOWING GENERAL AREAS--SELF-UNDERSTANDING, COUNSELING THEORY AND PROCESS, RECOGNITION AND REFERRAL OF SYMPTOMS AND PROBLEMS, AND DEVELOPMENTAL PSYCHOLOGY OF COLLEGE STUDENTS. FILMS, LECTURES, ROLE PLAYING, AND GROUP DISCUSSIONS WERE USED AND READINGS WERE SUGGESTED. IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT (1) THE TRAINING PROGRAM IN SUB-PROFESSIONAL COUNSELING PROVED PRACTICAL, (2) TRAINEES DISPLAYED AN INCREASE IN UNDERSTANDING RESPONSES AND A DECREASE IN EVALUATIVE AND SUPPORTIVE RESPONSES IN COUNSELING SITUATIONS, AND (3) CHANGES IN JOB PERFORMANCE WERE OBSERVED.
