The major purpose of this monograph is to provide counselors in elementary and secondary schools with information on learning style to enable them to diagnose the learning style of each student, utilize counseling interventions that complement individual learning style preferences and consult with teachers and parents regarding the accomodation of student learning style preferences in the classroom and at home. Application of the learning style approach is described as involving: (1) assessing the learning style of each student; (2) identifying patterns within the counseling caseload for grouping students according to learning style preferences; (3) interpreting learning style requirements of students for counseling purposes and applying complementary counseling approaches; and (4) evaluating student outcomes as a result of using the learning style model. Case studies are provided to assist counselors in applying the model at the elementary and secondary school levels. The learning style needs of special populations (gifted, physically disabled, school dropouts) are described. Descriptions of counseling programs that use learning preferences in counseling are provided. Research studies are outlined that show evidence that using the learning style approach in teaching and counseling results in improved academic achievement, more positive attitudes toward school, and selected developmental gains, such as increased career awareness.

Issues in training marriage and family therapists by Barbara F Okun( Book )

4 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Within the past decade, the field of marriage and family therapy has mushroomed. As a new and emerging professional specialization, marriage and family therapy is subject to control struggles as well as the proliferation of training modalities. This monograph, written for counselor education faculty, students, and family therapists, provides literature on select areas of marriage and family therapy (I.E., systems issues; training and supervision; and alternative family lifestyles) as they pertain to counselor education. The section on systems issues explores four aspects of program implementation: curricula and program development; accreditation requirements for the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (cacrep) and the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy (aamft); integration of marriage and family therapy into counselor education; and gender issues of family systems therapists. The section on training and supervision focuses on clinical training in family psychology and supervision from four perspectives: collegial process; a review of current practice; supervisee's perspective on live supervision; and the reflections of a supervisor. The alternative family lifestyles section addresses the training of divorce counselors and single parent family counseling. A list of references follows each article. (Bl)

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most teenage fathers care about what happens to their children and need to be given the opportunity to explore their concerns and feelings; however, they do not usually ask for help on their own. The Maximizing a Life Experience (MALE) program focuses on the goals of helping young men to understand their emotional as well as their legal rights and responsibilities as unwed fathers and to learn about available resources. The program, which consists of eight sessions plus a group evaluation, is described, and it is concluded that school counselors must become more active in responding to the silent cries of the forgotten half of the teenage pregnancy problem.

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although peer leaders have been effectively assisting school staffs since the 1960s, they have recently assumed their most critical role to date.

In addition, peer leaders are serving as prevention program administrators and often are taking the leadership in developing alternative drug-free school and community activities. (ABL)

Are school-based drug prevention programs working? by Caroline E Mohai( Book )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The effectiveness of many specific drug prevention strategies is not known yet, primarily because of poor program evaluation design. However, evidence has shown that interventions based on the social influence model are effective. Regardless of strategies employed, all prevention programs must start early; involve coordinated efforts with the community; include students, parents, teachers and community members in the planning process; and implement a systematic and comprehensive program. The program should be based on a clear hypothesis; contain different strategies for different populations; and give special attention to the needs of at-risk students. (ABL)
