The Principal's Role in Establishing a Peer Helping Program by Elizabeth S Foster( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There are several steps to developing a successful peer-helping program for an organization. The first step is needs assessment of the organization using tests, interviews, and reflection. Self-teaching or outside training can be used to become familiar with peer helping. Next, a philosophy should be created to support and guide the program's development. Structural issues of a peer-helping program include determining responsibility for coordination, training, and supervision; identifying rationale, purpose, goals, objectives, and outcomes; deciding how the program will be funded; and making provisions for maintenance and supervision. Also, it is important to gain support for the program from those associated with it such as staff, faculty, administration, board of directors, funding agencies, etc. A program budget and proposal outlining needs and goals should be developed. Students selected for the program should enjoy interacting with others, be creative, and be good at social-skill development. Training should include orientation to roles, developing helping relationships, communication skills, behavior management, leadership skills, and content skills. Peer helpers should have ongoing supervision, training, and evaluation. An administrators' guide is included. (JPT)
