Operation Mainstream; A Report on Problem Solving and the Helping Relationship.
Pine, Gerald J.; Horne, Peter J.
This report describes counselor aide training activities in the Operation Mainstream project conducted in Vermont, New Hampshire, and Northern Maine. It evaluates the effectiveness of the training program and identifies some significant and effective educational principles, concepts, and techniques. Its overall objective is to suggest a design for educational activities that will impart problem solving and helping skills to nonprofessionals wishing to improve their ability to help others solve their own problems. Content on rural poverty in Northern New England, interaction between counselors and clients, and related matters includes (and is derived from) data consisting largely of opinions and self-reports by community aides, supervisors, and trainers. The document includes 10 tables and figures, a questionnaire, guidelines for data collection, examples of training schedules, reporting forms, and procedures for selecting aides. (Author/LY)
