Witchel, Robert
The rapid pace at which societal changes have occurred in our culture has presented a tremendous challenge to higher education. A major attempt to meet this challenge has been the Tomorrow's Higher Education (THE) Project. The goal of the THE Project is to reconceptualize student affaris work in a way that will provide a measure of creative input from the student affairs profession toward the shaping of post-secondary education for the future. Student development specialists can identify their own counseling/life style as Experiential-Gestalt and clearly recognize how Experiential-Gestalt philosophy and process can contribute to the goals presented the THE Project and facilitate the student development specialist in fulfilling their functions. This paper briefly reviews the concepts of student development, specifically those which are summarized by the THE Project Statement. It offers a brief review of Experiential-Gestalt Therapy, relating the concepts to the THE Project Statement. A section is devoted to the Student Development Specialist. As A Model utilizing the skills and behavior of the Experiential-Gestalt therapist/person. And finally, it explores specific Experiential-Gestalt methods found useful in facilitating the development of college students. (Author)
