Hood, Kay E.; Butler, Robert R.
Result are summarized of a one-year pilot project to develop, implement and evaluate a paraprofessional counselor training model, which combines the psychology of women with basic helping skills. Supervised counseling experience gained through role playing and individual projects is also described. The goals of the program were to enable participants to: (1) recognize their own sex bias; (2) develop support strategies for women through counseling and communication skills; (3) use professional resources in educational and career planning and personal counseling; and (4) recognize personal limitations. Program evaluation discusses pre/post testing of participants' attitude change as well as feedback concerning the effectiveness of the program. Revisions to the model program are suggested. The appendix contains the revised course syllabus. (Author/NRB)
