Counseling. Essay on Teaching Able Students.
Fellows, Joseph E.; Nooney, Jill
The role of the counselor in a secondary school is discussed. The goal of psychotherapy is to reacquaint the student with the forgotten feelings and memories that have blocked growth in certain areas. By listening actively and empathetically, the counselor creates an atmosphere of trust that enables the student to talk freely. With the guidance of the counselor, the student begins to examine troublesome aspects of behavior, using childhood memories, recent experiences, and patterns of responses in the student-counselor relationship as raw material. A case study illustrates a problem brought to a counselor by a student and the methods and techniques that were used to solve it. (JD)
