Learning Styles Counseling.
Griggs, Shirley A.
The fundamental thrust of counseling for individual learning styles is eclectic; it provides a strong rationale for selecting counseling approaches which will enhance counselee learning and growth. Therefore, the learning style model needs to be introduced to graduate students and practicing counselors after they are thoroughly knowledgeable concerning existing theories, techniques, and the basic tenets of counseling. The major purpose of this book is to provide counselors in elementary and secondary schools with information on learning styles to enable them to diagnose the learning style of each student, utilize counseling interventions that complement individual learning style preferences, and consult with teachers about accommodating student learning preferences in the classroom. These topics are covered: (1) increasing counselor effectiveness through individual learning style identification; (2) prescribing counseling interventions based on learning styles; (3) consulting with classroom teachers and parents regarding learning styles; and (4) research on learning styles. (Research on learning styles in the areas of teaching, learning, and counseling is reviewed and appended.) (BHK)
