A Role Change Strategy: Decentralized Counseling.
Sweet, Gilbert A.
The debate over new counseling roles rages as some counselors are already adopting them. This paper describes alternative counseling-consulting interventions possible with teachers. It suggests a strategy for speeding the process of role change and encouraging counselor-teacher interaction. The strategy is that of decentralizing counseling offices into close proximity to teacher offices. The advantages and disadvantages are described. Among the issues central to success of this strategy is that of training. The difficulties involved in having counselors acquire new skills is discussed. A solution offered to the retraining of counselors already in the field and renewal of skills for others is the vast number of institutes being offered by growth centers around the country. The hope is expressed that in the future counselors will pick and choose skill training from the varied sources discussed in the paper. (Author/BW)
