Implementing Self-Management Strategies with Counselor-Trainees.
Hackney, Harold
This counselor training program is based on the self-management concept which has been "field-tested", and which focuses upon trainee behaviors and is committed to self-directed change. Program participants were assigned to learning labs of six to eleven students where they worked in triads on a communication skills approach to interpersonal interactions. At the beginning of each lab session, students identified two goals they hoped to achieve during that session. A self-evaluation component was included in order to establish a self-reinforcement schedule. While students learned to identify behavioral changes they would like to have made in the learning process, they were not always able to observe changes they were actually making. The author discusses the difficulties associated with using this technique with actual clients. (Author)
