Counseling College Students through Their Individual Learning Styles.
Price, Gary E.; Griggs, Shirley A.
This monograph discusses the learning style model for counseling college students. The targeted audience includes college counselors and counselor educators. Six objectives are noted: (1) to increase counselor effectiveness through individual learning style identification and prescription; (2) to provide counselors with a model for matching counseling techniques with learning style preferences of students; (3) to provide counselor educators with a model for looking at individual differences from a learning style perspective; (4) to identify counseling strategies that complement specific learning style elements; (5) to summarize research related to learning styles; and (6) to enable counselors to be consultants with teachers and instructors in providing a more effective learning environment. The document includes sections on increasing counselor effectiveness through learning style identification, using learning styles in counseling, counseling interventions based on learning styles, and research on counseling and learning styles. An extensive bibliography is included. (ABL)
