Interactive Training Model: Enhancing Beginning Counseling Student Development
Paladino, Derrick A.; Minton, Casey A. Barrio; Kern, Carolyn W.
Counselor Education and Supervision, v50 n3 p189-206 Mar 2011
The authors propose the Interactive Training Model (ITM), a full classroom role play experience, as a method for helping student counselors develop essential interviewing and counseling skills and self-awareness as required by the 2009 Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs "Standards." This pre-post, quasiexperimental study involving 45 master's-level students indicated that those who participated in the ITM made greater gains in supervisee development compared with those who participated in a traditional peer feedback model. Narrative student feedback regarding the use of ITM in an essential skills course is presented, and implications for counselor education are discussed.
