Resource Resourcefulness: A One-Day Training Workshop.
Mamarchev, Helen L.; Pritchett, Beverly
The role of helping professionals is emerging as an integral part of a comprehensive program. "Resource resourcefulness," a developmental phase of any such program, requires special knowledge and skills on the part of all helping professionals, from counselors to career education specialists. A resource can be defined as any source of information, human or nonhuman. Acquiring and maintaining these resources can be assimilated into the total process of needs assessment, program design, implementation and evaluation. The workshop described is designed to help participants acquire specific skills to apply to their work settings. The one-day training program can be used for preservice counselor education, and provides a step-by-step approach to developing skills in resource acquisition and utilization from the beginning stage of resource attitudes assessment to the final stage of implementation.
