Enhancing Teachers' Counselling Skills: Student Teachers' Views on a Teachers' Education Programme
Doikou, Maro; Diamandidou, Konstantina
European Journal of Teacher Education, v34 n1 p61-79 Feb 2011
The purpose of this small-scale study is to investigate the outcomes of a brief teacher education programme by exploring student teachers' views. The teacher education programme aimed to provide teachers with the opportunity to develop qualities and skills that facilitate communication and to enhance teachers' competence to apply social and emotional (SEL) programmes' intervention activities in the classroom. According to student teachers' estimations, the teacher education programme provided them with new knowledge and experiences in communication and counselling, which they felt they could use in teaching practice. Besides, teachers reported that the programme enabled them to develop their self-awareness and to adopt a non-directive attitude during the implementation of SEL programme's activities.
