Golin, Norman; Safferstone, Mark
Developed for use in the Dade County, Florida, school system, this training manual presents an overview of curriculum materials, course design and methodology by which a unit in peer counseling can be conducted. It is designed to aid students in developing facilitative behavior and counseling skills. Goals of this training program for peer counseling include: (1) increasing students' awareness of themselves and others; (2) developing facilitative communication skills; (3) developing problem-solving and decision-making skills; (4) clarifying students' value systems; and (5) developing small group guidance skills and techniques. The 15-session program is designed so that learning takes place primarily through the affective experiences of group interaction. It is intended that a student trained in peer counseling during one quinmester will have the opportunity to engage in peer counseling the following quinmester. (Author/NMF)
