Peer Power. Book 2, Applying Peer Helper Skills. Second Edition.
Tindall, Judith A.
A step-by-step model for training peer counselors forms the basis of the trainer's manual and accompanying exercises for trainees which are organized into two books for effective skill building. Designed for peer counseling trainees, this document presents the second of these two exercise books. The book begins with a brief introduction to applying peer helping skills. This introduction is followed by the 11 modules of the advanced training program in peer counseling. Numbered consecutively from the modules in the introductory workbook, this book begins with Module 14 on intervention and prevention issues related to alcohol and drug abuse. Module 15 focuses on stress managment, module 16 on self-esteem, and module 17 on leadership training. Module 18 presents skills for peer helping through tutoring, module 19 focuses on facilitating small discussion groups, and module 20 discusses leading classroom groups. Modules 21 through 24 deal with recognizing eating disorder problems, suicide prevention, coping with loss, and ethical considerations in peer counseling and peer helping, respectively. Each module contains a variety of exercises, activities, and worksheets for trainees. The document concludes with some comments on self-evaluation, a self-evaluation questionnaire for the peer counselor/helper, and a list of additional readings. (NB)
