Peer Counselor-Consultant Training: A Self-Help Strategy for Cross-Cultural, Multi-Ethnic Schools.
Furlong, Michael J.; And Others
This paper discussed the rationale for using Peer Counselor-Consultant Training (PCCT) in cross-cultural, multiethnic schools. PCCT is an eclectic system which incorporates a consultation counselor role model, psychological education, and peer counselor training into a school counseling program. The overall objective is to develop the contexts in which personal growth and development can occur. The advantages of using the PCCT model in cross-cultural settings are that it: (1) encourages self-help activity; (2) utilizes modeling to influence behavior; (3) is self-motivating; (4) makes information explicit and available to everyone; (5) is based upon principles of exchange and reciprocity; (6) has direct classroom applications; and (7) is a subversive activity. A discussion of each of these seven points is presented. (Author)
