Help One: A Critical Thinking Approach to Individual Counseling in Intercultural Settings.
Klimes, Rudolf E.
This booklet outlines a holistic approach for counseling those with addictive disorders. The program is based on the idea that any activity, whether physical, mental, or spiritual, contributes to the tendency toward addiction, and that counseling should help an individual for a lifetime. The primary goal is to implement reasonable, responsible, and rational plans to rid the addict of addictive behaviors. Physical aspects of addiction serve as the initial focus. The program is presented in three parts: counseling skills, counseling perspective, and course and lesson plans. The chapters in each part feature an overview, followed by one or more outlines or models. Worksheets provide students with some structure as they practice counseling skills and the course plan and lesson plans provide for regular evaluations of the achieved counseling skill level. A course pretest and post-test is recommended. The course can also be used for training peer or lay counselors who counsel outside a professional setting. Peer counselors are closely supervised in out-of-class laboratory activities in order to minimize difficulties. Since counselors must experience the counseling process in order to help others, this volume provides the structure for such a training experience. (RJM)
