Teaching Job-Related Behavioral Competencies Through the Use of Prescribed Leader Interventions Within a Structured Group Counseling Program. Special Report
The Experimental Manpower Laboratory developed and piloted a structured counseling program which was designed to teach specific job-required behaviors. Each structured counseling session had as its objective, one of the job-required behaviors. Within the session specific interventions were prescribed to achieve the predetermined objective. This systematic approach permitted more clear delineatation of the problems attendant on the utilization of group interventions which in turn permitted the analysis of the problems and raised questions directed to their systematic resolution. Most of these problems have been elusive of clear definition and therefore analysis and resolution. This paper identifies some of the problems in utilizing group interventions to achieve specific prestated objectives. (Author)
