Two Methods of Teaching Communication Skills to Graduate Level Students in Counseling and Guidance.
Thweatt, Norma Erna Fork
This study compares the effects of two procedures for teaching communication skills to graduate students enrolled in a masters-level counseling and guidance program. Skill training was based on Carkhuff's model and used refinements made by Gazda. Three treatment settings were established: 12 hours of skills training using videotape equipment, 12 hours of training omitting videotape feedback, and 12 hours of training using procedures regularly followed in the standard counseling and guidance course. Evaluation of subjects' counseling skills, following the different treatment interventions, revealed that, while no difference could be shown between training with videotape use and training without videotape use, specific training did increase communication skills. Recommendations are made for further study in this area. (Author/KS)
