Functions of the Small Consultation Group in Teaching Employment Counseling Skills.
Martin, Diane K.
This paper presents a talk about the functions of a small consultation group in a program at the University of Chicago for teaching employment counseling skills. The small consultation group has served as the home base of this training program. It is the only segment of the program that has met regularly at both the university and the local employment service office. It has been a natural go-between for the university staff and for the employment service staff. The paper discusses seven functions which the small consultation group fulfills in the training program: (1) discussion of classroom lectures; (2) consultation on counseling skills; (3) facilitation of personal growth; (4) study of group process; (5) exploration of how to develop an organization; (6) taking of field trips; and (7) sharing of information. In retrospect, one other function, having a good time in the process of work, was mentioned. The author concludes that her most important goal is for the experience to enlarge the trainee's vision of what is possible in handling and ultimately in creating his own life choices. (WS/Author)
