This insightful volume is a result of the authors' extensive professional experience both in direct counseling positions and as faculty members of the prestigious Northfield and Fountain Valley Centers for training teachers as counselors. Although emanating from a private school experience, the book is universally applicable in school settings. The principles and recommendations are highly sensitive to the contemporary educational environment and the needs of today's students. Choice The Northfield-Fountain Valley Counseling Institutes, founded by faculty from the Harvard University Health Services, have developed a highly successful, widely respected, and proven program for training teachers as counselors. The Institutes are committed to helping teachers develop, improve, and broaden counseling skills--a process that expands their role as teachers and enhances their work wth students. The Institutes' creative and evocative program is, with modifications appropriate to the setting, applicable in all secondary schools. This insightful volume, written by faculty members themselves, brings together principles and concepts taught at the Institutes. The book is founded on principles that, when applied, expand the teacher's understanding of the counseling relationship as it properly relates to education. Counseling Students conveys a distinguished faculty's years of experience and a commitment to and enthusiasm for the views counseling as on on-going process in which the teacher, with professional objectivity and controlled empathy, interacts with students to help them understand concerns and emotions that may impede personal development or threaten academic progress. Counseling Students is a particularly valuable resource for teachers, guidance professionals, and administrators and will be an indispensable guide for strengthening counseling and in-service training programs for teachers.
This is the 4th edition of Nosh for Students, a book originally inspired by the author's son, Ben, who left for university with no cooking skills. Toasted sandwiches and Mars bars were his staple diet, but these didn't serve him too well!
Are you a postgraduate student just beginning to teach? Are you a contract researcher, teaching fellow or instructor who has been asked to do some teaching? If you are, you may feel you have been 'thrown in at the deep end'. You may quite rightly, feel unprepared for the task, and, like other postgraduate teachers, you may be facing a number of dilemmas: you may not have much time to feel your way into this new role; you may not be happy with what looks like a 'trial and error' model of learning to teach; you may even feel you have not had much choice in what you are to teach or what kinds of sessions you've been asked to facilitate. Someone in your department may have tried to reassure you -- 'You know all this stuff. You'll be fine' -- on the basis of your first degree, but you may still be worried about whether or not you are really ready to teach.
