Appeared in Choice on 1989-02:
The Northfield-Fountain Valley Counselling Institutes consist of week-long summer workshops to train teachers as counselors. They are jointly sponsored by Harvard University Health Services, The Northfield schools of East Northfield, Connecticut, and the Fountain Valley schools of Colorado Springs, Colorado. Conducted by Harvard University counseling staff, they are attended by private secondary school teachers--currently, 72 teachers per session. Counseling Students is written by Institute staff and consists of the principles and concepts taught. Although the authors espouse no particular counseling framework, the material is congruent with Client Centered Therapy (1951) as developed by Carl Rogers. The basic premise is that since teachers "talk to their students already," they can achieve significant gains in support and understanding for those students in need by examining the framework adapted by professional counselors. The strength of the book lies in the authors' integration of that framework with the day-to-day concerns of students, teachers, administrators, and parents. Moreover, the book will be useful in those instances when the teacher-student barrier must be transcended in order to deal with students experiencing stress. Recommended for general readers, advanced students, and specialists. -D. Sydiaha, University of Saskatchewan

Summaries
Long Description
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.
