Utilization of Para-Professional Counselors. Final Project Report.
Southwestern Coll., Chula Vista, CA.
This Title III project involved the training and utilization of a paraprofessional counselor in working with a sample of first-time freshmen students at California's Southwestern College. The hypothesis was that a team consisting of a paraprofessional and professional counselor wound be more effective in counseling; the assignment of routine tasks to the paraprofessional will enable the professional to concentrate on his area of expertise. The paraprofessional received special training from the professional counselor, and an inservice training program was also conducted. A data card was designed to determine whether a student seeking counseling could be assigned to the paraprofessional and to determine the total number of students the counselors see. This final report is presented in three parts--statistical data, narrative, and financial data. The Para-Professional Training Manual is attached. (KM)
