The Counselor as a Consultant. Trainer's Manual [and] Participant's Manual.
Quinn, I. Thomas
These two manuals provide a suggested format and materials for a one-day workshop designed to train the trainers of counselors who wish to be consultants, as well as to train the counselors to be consultants. Although counselor-consultants can serve many populations, the focus of these manuals is on services to teachers. The trainer's manual contains an introduction, suggested workshop timelines, four program modules, a workshop evaluation form, and an appendix of resource materials. The four modules cover orientation; approaches for consultants to use with teachers; inservice alternatives, possible resources, and implementation strategies; and a summary and evaluation. The appendix contains exercises, activities, and a description of a counselor-consultant training program. The participant's manual contains an introduction, seven program modules, and an appendix of resource materials. The modules cover orientation, approaches for consultants to use with teachers, inservice alternatives, consultant implementation strategies, possible resources, workshop pre-plan and implementation plan, and a summary. The resource materials in the appendix are descriptions of training programs, exercises, suggested principles for consultants to give to teacher-advisors, suggested teacher-advisor activities, selected resources, suggested change agent implementation steps, a pre-planning worksheet, and a counselor-consultant implementation proposal.
