Bridging the Gap: A Pilot Program for the Nontraditional Student.
Grottkau, Beverly Jean
This document presents the curriculum for a pilot program for nontraditional students, held concurrently with a 13-week Medical Assistant Program, designed as a bridge into academic life. It notes that the program and its cognitive group counseling methodology are designed to strengthen the personal identity of students and to help them develop assertiveness skills and a sense of independence which will maximize their potential for academic success. The handbook briefly describes the program rationale; special features of the pilot program; program overview; pilot program goals; pilot program objectives; curricular units and objectives of the pilot program; evaluation procedures; and a pilot program curriculum outline, clinician's narrative, and researcher's validation of instructional intent and comments. It presents each of the program's 22 sessions in separate sections which list the session's objective, curriculum outline, primary sources of instruction, clinician's narrative, and researcher's validation of instructional intent and comments. References are included; relevant materials, inventories, and a program evaluation form are appended. (NB)
