Preparing Counselors for Disadvantaged Students Using Videotape and IPR.
Maslon, Patricia J.
This program describes an experimental series of six training workshops, directed toward the unique needs of counselors in inner-city schools. The workshops attempted to counteract insularity in current counselor education programs (textbooks and tape recorded interviews) by providing new and more potent methods for counseling disadvantaged students. The training sessions used videotaped stimulus vignettes, small group interaction exercises, and Interpersonal Process Recall demonstrations and recall sessions. The trainees were 12 masters degree candidates in Counselor Education at New York University; simultaneously, they were employed as counselors and teachers in "inner city" schools in New York City. The stimulus materials were videotaped by the workshop leader, and situations used in training were directly relevant to the trainees' ongoing needs and experiences in their work settings. Workshop sessions consisted of small group participation in structural exercises, which were videotaped, and large group discussions. Trainees viewed 12 threatening and immediate stimulus vignettes during which they were videotaped; small group interactions and total group discussions were also videotaped and played back, and IPR was used as a continuing vehicle for counselor supervision throughout the workshop series. Results of the workshop were rated as positive by the trainees. (Author)
