Models of Counselling Centres.
Calgary Univ. (Alberta).
University counseling centers usually follow one of a variety of themes or "models," although not in pure form. Perhaps the oldest is the vocational counseling model, which concentrates on helping students find suitable careers. In the psychotherapy model, most student concerns are seen for their personal content. Another model, student affairs counseling, finds counselors handling student services in addition to counseling. In a training model, most of the counseling is done by student-trainees. Both the research model and religious counseling model have dubious validity. In the cloister model, both student and counselor are secluded. Finally, the student development center model is characterized by (1) a goal of maximizing human effectiveness, freedom, and growth, (2) movement into the college community in an effort to prevent problems, and (3) mobilization of campus resources.
