A Behavioral Model for the Practicum Supervision of Counselor Candidates.
Delaney, Daniel J.
The goal of a counselor education program is to educate and train individuals who will be able to fulfill the role and functions of the counselor in a variety of settings. Practicum is viewed as an essential experience in helping students develop the necessary skills to function as a counselor. A behavioral model of supervision for use in the practicum training of counselor candidates is presented. Five steps comprise the model: (1) the initial session, (2) the development of a good, human relationship, (3) goal identification and determination of supervisory procedures, (4) the use of supervisory techniques and procedures, and (5) termination and follow-up. These stages are thoroughly explained, with goals for each stage given. In stage four, three important supervisory approaches are presented: (1) instruction, (2) modeling, and (3) reinforcement. These are further explained in relation to stage four itself. (Author/SJ)
