Simulation in Counselor Education.
Miller, Thomas V.
Simulation should be a principal feature of a counselor education program. Simulation is a controlled representation of a real situation. In a systematic counseling training program, emphasis is placed on the establishment of instructional objectives and the use of simulation experiences to reach these goals. Instructional objectives are prepared following Mager (1962) which include conditions, terminal behavior, and criteria. The levels of simulation of reading and listening, modeling, practice experiences and role playing, and supervised experience are used to develop each of these counselor skills. The use of simulation in a systematic training program is carefully planned and presented to the trainee as an instructional package for the mastery of a specified counselor skill. (Author)
