Student-to-Student Counseling. Final Report.
Baldwin, Roland A.
The success of a student-to-student counseling Program which involves counseling of students by peers is attributed to greater acceptance of peer counselors by students because they 'speak the same language' and share the same problems. Counseling is conducted informally through telephone calls, in cafeterias and in classrooms. The student counselors are trained and provided with various reference materials they may need in their work. Some tentative results which reflect the success of the student-to-student counseling program include: (1) a decrease in the total number of withdrawals; (2) a decrease in the total number of program changes; and (3) a feeling on the part of faculty, staff and students that the image of the university in responding to the individual has been strengthened by the program.
