Grab H.O.L.D.: Help Overcome Learner Dropouts. Peer Counseling Manual.
This manual is designed for teachers and counselors to train high school students as peer counselors. Developed as part of a secondary guidance project designed to maintain enrollment of potential dropouts, this training manual focuses on basic peer counseling skills, such as active listening, effective message sending, self-awareness, helping skills, values clarification, decision-making, and helping relationships. Teaching units are directed toward the facilitator of peer counseling training sessions, and student worksheets are provided. Each unit contains a list of specific skills, teaching activities, discussion questions, along with a section on special issues. The units in Section Two teach strategies for using these skills effectively in the school setting. An annotated bibliography of resources is provided in the appendix. (Author/NRB)
