Peer Helpers: Overview and Caution or Peer Helpers: Buyer Beware!
Morrill, Correen M.; And Others
As counseling programs are being strained by the ever increasing needs of today's students, other methods of helping the students are being used. The peer helper program is one method that is optimistically being tried. Information is presented here on the background, training procedures, and evaluation methods (both subjective and objective) of the program. It is difficult to evaluate the program, as is pointed out in one evaluation study that had inconclusive results. Although the peer helper program appears to be useful and worthwhile, caution is urged until enough data is gathered to substantiate the effectiveness of the program. (Author)
