Communication Skills Training.
Burke, Margaret J.; And Others
The paper outlines a faculty developed communication skills training lab designed for students in a masters degree program in guidance and counselor education. The communication module, three voluntary, ungraded sessions offered during three of the final six class meetings, focus attention on (1) distinguishing between thinking, feeling, and experiencing; (2) using effective "I" statements; and (3) responding with empathy. Each of these skill areas is described in detail, behavioral objectives are stated, and procedures for class time--including cognitive input, demonstration, practice, and summary--are outlined. These class meetings are designed as training and practice sessions and not as lectures, discussions, or therapy. Results of students' evaluation of the lab are included, as well as behavior check lists and tables comparing independent rater evaluations to students' own self-assessments. (SES)
