Futureprint Counseling Design.
Guillen, Mary A.
A junior high school level program combines reading instruction with guidance counseling. Students become aware of their personal dignity, worth, and responsibility. An introduction to the rationale of classroom counseling precedes 6 sections of course materials and techniques. A section on values clarification contains exercises examining personal values, aspirations, peer pressures, friendship, and monetary values. A section on self-awareness includes exercises and activities for expressing feelings and recognizing the characteristics of a high self-esteem person. A communication skills section focuses on behavior change, listening skills, dealing with feelings, problem solving, and parenting. Techniques for implementing change include a behavior description profile, behavior modification contract, group counseling contract, and suggestions for building self-esteem in the classroom. A section of suggestions for teacher record-keeping consists of guidance statistics, an evaluation form, a reading plan, a parental permission form, and a general information sheet. A final section outlines commercial materials for counseling. A bibliography concludes the handbook. (LP)
