Model Allied Health Professions Counseling Program Guide for Secondary Schools.
Lewis, Laura P.; Tanner, James R.
The purpose of this project is to develop and test a model secondary school counseling program emphasizing allied health professions careers. This high school program developer and counselors Guide Book and Resource Kit are produced here to assist secondary schools in their efforts to systematically improve curricular experiences for increased numbers of high school learners. Definitive information about allied health careers, in addition to course of study, are presented here as learning tools for use by counselors and teachers to provide exploratory and informative experiences for their students. This model program was tested, implemented and evaluated in both Cleveland, Ohio and New Orleans, Louisiana simultaneously. Teaching and counseling content and techniques were tried out with diverse economic and racial groups. Suggestions in the course of study include lectures, demonstrations, field observations, surveys, other techniques and technical content synthesized from experiences of health practitioners, high school and college instructors, counselors, administrators and admissions officers. Helpful learning hints are offered in the Resource Kit for educators, such as mathematics and science teachers and non-allied health counselors, so that they may integrate allied health fields awareness into their teaching plans. With successful completion of this program students will have adequate knowledge and experience about allied health careers to make career selections. (Author)
