Counseling in Adult Basic Education: A Handbook.
Jesse, B. E., Ed.; Long, Elvin, Ed.
This handbook is intended to assist adult basic education (ABE) staff members to increase their effectiveness as counselors. The underlying philosophy is that each ABE student has unique characteristics, expectations, and abilities which should make the teacher-student relationship individualized. The counselor of adults must know his own qualities, know his community's resources, needs, and services, know and use the team of staff members, and know his students. Some specific problems and suggested solutions are cited to serve as a springboard in helping students. Followup of former students can help the ABE counselor evaluate his programs. (MS)
