A College Curriculum for Displaced Homemakers: Women's Crisis Counseling.
Newman, Judith; And Others
An associate degree program, designed to train displaced homemakers as paraprofessional counselors, is described, including the on-the-job training experiences and the academic courses. An example of the general curriculum is included, along with an evaluation questionnaire to determine program appropriateness. Evaluation results are discussed in terms of the nontraditional students' ability to: (1) understand influential factors in their lives; (2) recognize the unique aspects of the feminine experience which make women more likely to be better counselors than men for other women; (3) increase their economic status; and (4) enhance their self-esteem.
