Efficacy of Elderly and Adolescent Volunteer Counselors in a Nursing Home Setting.
Nagel, Joseph; And Others
Journal of Counseling Psychology, v35 n1 p81-86 Jan 1988
Trained 20 elderly and 20 adolescent volunteer counselors in empathic listening, and gave 20 volunteers information regarding the aging process. Counselors and nursing home residents met twice a week for five weeks. Nursing home residents who received a volunteer counselor improved significantly in level of depression, but neither mode of training nor age proved significant. (Author/KS)
