Inservice Education and the School Counselor.
The school counselor as a team member has a leading role to play in inservice education of the teaching faculty. The counselor has considerable contact with students and has valuable information on developing a quality inservice education program. Inservice education has the goal of improving the curriculum for students. This paper presents a model of a workshop on inservice education. The first part of the workshop is to have a general session for all participants to determine problem areas to pursue. The workshop then stresses vital problem areas for committees to consider in offering valid solutions. Leadership is needed from the counselor to make certain that each problem area is clearly stated in order that viable solutions can be determined. Once the problem areas are identified, participants decide the committee on which to serve for problem solving. The third part of the workshop is for individual areas of problem solving that participants wish to work on. The guidance counselor can also use faculty meetings for discussing relevant and vital items. To develop successful programs, administrators need to encourage and support professional counselors' endeavors to be consultant educators and inservice training providers. (Contains 10 references.)
