A Study in the Application of the C. A. Curran Counseling-Learning Model to Adults.
Brady, Thomas C.
The study attempts to demonstrate movement in adult learning from particularization to symbolization to internalization (value choice) through use of a Counseling-Learning Model. Adult resistance to learning is dealt with through application of counseling awarenesses to the learning situation. If the adult learner can be freed from threat to self-identify in the learning situation, he can learn with much the same ease with which the child learns. This hypothesis was tested at two five-day Counseling-Learning Institutes, one in the United States and one in Canada. Subjects represented primarily the helping professions. Significance of the study lies in the fact that in a relatively short time (five days) significant change can be achieved in adult values. Further research is needed to determine the permanency of value change thus acquired. (Author)
