The Counselor's Role: A Cooperative Exploration.
Warthen, Mary Ann; Carson, W. E.
The basic format of the conference incorporated orientation to student needs and to the proper utilization of professional talent, visual simulations of counselor roles, and exercise in group consensus, and a reaction panel. To present a picture of what the counselor should be doing from the viewpoint of student needs, Dr. Walter Busby spoke on "Human Needs and the Schools." Video tape scenes depicting various counselor responsibilities and actions followed. The simulated scenes were planned to catalyze interest and thinking and act as a stimulus for the discussion period which followed. The second presentation examined the desirability and economics of using the professional talent of counselors in a professional manner. Mr. Harry Adley spoke on the "Management and Utilization of Professional Talent." This was again followed by taped video scenes and a second round of discussions. The final activity for the group was establishing priorities for counselor activities, and a panel reaction to the priorities. The research reported herein was funded under Title III of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. (SJ)
