International Education Studies, v5 n5 p163-172 Oct 2012
The study focused on the effects of basic counseling skills program, such as listening, understanding, respecting, and empathizing, to elementary school teachers in Qatar. Through a three-hour intervention program, the authors used a self-reported questionnaire, interview questions and classroom observations to examine changes in how preschool teachers' dealt with students' in the classroom. Our findings suggest basic counseling skills had an impact on teachers as it encouraged them to understand terms such as "counseling," which basic counseling skills had allowed teachers to improve the quality of students-teacher relationships and their relationships with others. Teachers became aware of their practices as reflective practitioners to improve their practice.
