Training Counselors To Relate in a Global Community Using the Structured Interview Process.
Kasambira, K. Paul; Rybak, Christopher J.
This paper discusses a program designed to assist counseling students to improve cross cultural communication skills that will enable them to use interviewing techniques with individuals from diverse cultures. Research suggests that such a program is needed since many students have not had significant experiences in interacting and communicating with people from different backgrounds. The program offers an open-ended approach with continual opportunities to refine and enhance skills of students, building on the demonstration videos of previous students. The structured interview process described offers an integrative, flexible, and developmental model for enhancing cross cultural communication. The model offers the possibility of involving counselors in training at all levels of experiences. (Contains 12 references.) (JDM)
