An Argument for the Use of Para-Professional Counselors in Premarital and Marital Counseling.
Curtis, John H.; Miller, Michael E.
Current social changes reinforce the need for trained marriage and family counselors. After a brief examination of these changes, the authors suggested paraprofessional training as one alternative for providing needed marriage and family counseling services. Already established paraprofessional programs, advantages, disadvantages, and the criterion for the establishment of a nationwide paraprofessional program are discussed. Areas in which paraprofessionals could make a vital contribution, segments of the nation's population which need paraprofessional counseling, and target groups which might benefit most from paraprofessional training are identified.
