Fundamental Counseling Skills: Getting Kids to Act!
provides a follow-up to the well-received
Bob Ditter DVD, Fundamental Counseling Skills: Getting Kids to Listen!
, a powerful set of tools
and language that any camp counselor, new or experienced, can put to immediate use in their
work with campers. The DVD features various skills and strategies that counselors can use to get
kids to do the things they either don't like to do or traditionally need a lot of prodding to get
done. The DVD also details how counselors can build momentum in a group of campers and
how they can transition from being the campers' "friend" to being "the boss!"
Among the topics covered:
- Changing your role
- Cold starts
- Kids who are easily distracted
- Road trip (progressive interventions)
- Other great practices
