A Training Method to Teach Paraprofessionals Peer Counseling.
Meyer, Marilyn; And Others
The training methods used to develop peer counselors to colead counseling groups and provide both remedial and preventive counseling to academically able freshmen who have never performed at a level in keeping with their potential are described. Freshman subjects were selected on a voluntary basis from those who scored in the top quartile in the American College Testing Program, but failed to reach a 2.00 grade point average. The differentiating treatment between the experimental and control groups consisted of a peer-led counseling group experience. The "effect" of the group experience on academic behavior was measured by comparing grade point averages of the experimental and control groups. In addition, follow-up data is to be collected for three consecutive semesters. The major body of this report is a verbatim transcript of some of the group sessions. (Author/BW)
