The Effectiveness of Christian Adolescent Peer Counselor Training - A Controlled Study

Description:
This study evaluated the effectiveness of a Christian-based adolescent peer counseling curriculum (Sturkie & Tan, 1992) used with Christian high school students. The training group of 47 subjects received training, while 37 subjects were in the no-training comparison group. All 84 subjects completed 4 self-report measures (Counselor Training Program Questionnaire, Helping Relationship Inventory, Valuegenesis Faith Maturity Measure, Spiritual Well Being Scale). Additionally, the training group was videotaped in 15-minute roleplays, pre and posttraining. Compared to the no-training group, the training group reported significantly higher knowledge and competence in Christian counseling, and expressed a significantly stronger preference for an understanding response style. Trained students were also seen as significantly more empathic, genuine, and respectful by 2 independent raters of the roleplay videotapes.
