Dimensions of Counseling Intervention. Technical Report Number I.
Morrill, Weston H.; And Others
A descriptive model was developed of the dimensions of possible counseling interventions. The three dimensions are the target of intervention, purpose of interventions, and type or method of intervention. The target of the intervention refers to the possibility of interviewing with the individual, his primary or associational groups, or the institutional or societal groups that influence his behavior. The second dimension refers to whether the purpose of the intervention is remedial, preventative or developmental. The method of intervention may be directly by a professional or indirectly through the use of paraprofessionals, media or other means. These dimensions are explained further and examples are provided illustrating each classification. A definition of outreach which is based on the model is presented. Outreach programs are defined as any program which extends beyond the individual/remedial/direct intervention cell of the model. (Author)
