The Many Faces of Kevin Michael Pullen.
Gannon, Frederick B.
The Many Faces of Kevin Michael Pullen is a case study intended to provide a basis for comprehensive discussions in counselor education courses at the graduate level and in inservice workshops for practicing secondary school counselors. Kevin is a young man, able to get through high school without developing his talents and skills. At the end of his high school career, he had to make a decision about college. He made the decision on incomplete evidence and information about himself. Kevin and his counselor are the main sources of information along with records from high school and college. The case study has three major aspects: (1) it describes Kevin's feelings associated with his successes and failures, (2) it can be used at several levels of sophistication by counselors, and (3) it is a realistic and recognizable situation. Pertinent questions are included at the end of each section. Commentaries on the case from the viewpoint of a counselor educator and the guidance director of a public school are presented. Exhibits of Kevin's records and test results, study questions, a bibliography, and a brief discussion of possible uses of the case study are given. (Author/KJ)
