Integrating Outcome Research Into Counseling Practice and Training

release date: Jan 01, 1997
Integrating Outcome Research Into Counseling Practice and Training
The systematic study of counseling occupies a curious position; although a large quantity of research-based knowledge exists, practitioners continue to perceive research as irrelevant. Ways that research and practice can be systematically linked are explored in this book. The goal of the text is to present information on counseling as a process, irrespective of its theoretical and professional alliances. The volume is divided into three parts. Part 1 forms the foundation of the book and presents an analysis of the major criticisms of outcome research, along with a brief overview of the unique nature of counseling outcome research. The four chapters in Part 2 focus on the application of current research-based knowledge to the practice of counseling. Conclusions and recommendations are offered that are deemed representative of stable trends in the body of outcome research, with an emphasis on behavior change across settings and focal areas. Part 3 addresses the integration of research into practice. Practical techniques that practitioners and researchers can use are explored and a pragmatic model of the systematic relationship between counseling research and practice is presented. A model of action to help make research a regular part of daily counseling practice is also provided. Contains an index and approximately 550 references. (RJM)

Activities for Counseling Underachievers

release date: Jan 01, 1993
Activities for Counseling Underachievers
Conventional wisdom has it that the way to achieve more is to study harder--put in longer hours and avoid the distraction of other people. Research suggests something different--study smarter, not necessarily harder, and use other students as a support group. This book provides teachers and counselors with tools they need to help students improve both their perceptions of themselves as achievers and their ability to apply effective learning strategies. Students determine what''s right about their achievement and where they can make improvements by completing and scoring the Achievement Potential Survey. They check their interpretative and prescriptive skills by discussing relevant Simulated Case Histories. They enhance their ability and motivation to achieve by participating in Individual and Group Activities that focus on these topic areas: (1) Being Comfortable in School; (2) Getting Along with Others; (3) Asking for and Getting Help; (4) Goal Setting; (5) Decision Making and Problem Solving; (6) Career Exploration; (7) Study Skills; (8) Self-esteem and Personal Strengths.
