New Selection and Training Procedures for Counselor Training Programs.
Mandell, Robert B.
Traditional indices such as the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), grade point average (GPA), and various personality measures have been of limited value when used as selection criteria for counselor education programs. While these indices should not be eliminated, counselor educators need to establish more relevant selection criteria for their training program. One such criteria deserving exploration is potential effectiveness as a practitioner in the helping professions. The author presents here the outline of an instrument he has constructed which measures an individual's discriminative ability in identifying human emotional states. It consists of 45 audio tape segments, each of which expresses an emotional state which a viewer is asked to identify. Extensive reliability and validity procedures were performed and are reported. The author feels that the present instrument could be a positive step toward establishing greater compatibility between the selection criteria and the goals of the counselor education programs. Various uses by this instrument as a tool for training are discussed. (Author/SES)
