Toward Individual and Family Well-Being: A Modest Proposal for Initiating Counseling Programs in Support of Family Resources in Western Kansas Communities.
Guss, Thomas O.
This paper provides the analysis used to support implementation of a family counseling sequence in a regional mid-western university. It describes the creation of the Family Development Program, a course designed to address these regional needs. The Program utilizes the model and Guidelines for Kansas Comprehensive School Counseling Programs, Family Life Education Standards, and Family Resource Coalition of America Principles. Highlights are presented of the program instruction in several approaches to services supporting family well being and individual development. The program attempts to empower service providers, especially counselors, to support program change directed at enhancing family well being, and discusses how to advocate directly on behalf of children, youth, and families. Appendix A is "Characteristics of Youth in Western Kansas"; and Appendix B is "Handout Resources." (Contains 5 tables and 45 references.) (Author/JDM)
