Peer Counseling: Trained Teenagers Reaching Peers in Human Relations.
Varenhorst, Barbara B.
The Palo Alto Peer Counseling program, now finishing its third year of operation, is described. The first year was a pilot year in which the idea was tested and the beginning draft of a curriculum developed. The second year was a developmental year, in which the practicum groups were started as students who had taken the 12-week training the previous spring started their assignments. In this year the first course was offered for adults wishing to become supervisor-trainers. The third year, now ending, was the experimental year when the program is being systematically evaluated. The overall program is discussed with the philosophical foundation included and the future goals for development outlined. (Author)
