Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"This should be a bible for comprehensive peer leader training programs. It is a very helpful tool for those of us training peers to co-teach freshman seminars, providing both an intellectual and practical foundation."

--John N. Gardner, senior fellow and distinguished professor emeritus, National Resource Center for the First-Year Experience and Students in Transition, University of South Carolina

"Students Helping Students is a comprehensive, practical, and insightful guide to the essentials of effective peer education. It is must reading for any students involved in learning their roles as peer educators."

--Charles C. Schroeder, vice chancellor for student affairs, University of Missouri-Columbia

"It's about time higher education devoted more attention to developing the single most powerful group on campus: peers! From residence halls to health centers, this book offers useful skills and applications for peers helping peers. Special kudos for helping peer educators learn about intercultural competence and ethical practices."

--Susan R. Komives, associate professor of College Student Personnel, University of Maryland, and former president, American College Personnel Association

"This book is particularly relevant for student affairs professionals involved in training, especially for those working on campuses with culturally diverse student populations."

--John O'Connell, vice president for student affairs, Richmond, The American International University in London

"We know from an extensive body of research that college students develop cognitively and emotionally largely from their interactions with other students. Steve Ender and Fred Newton have translated that research evidence into a series of thoughtful interventions and strategies that will enhance the positive impacts of peer interactions. This is an important work that should be on the bookshelf of any student affairs professional."

--Ernest Pascarella, Mary Louise Petersen Professor of Higher Education, University of Iowa

This practical training guide is for the thousands of college students who serve as leaders, tutors, counselors, and advisors for their peers. Beginning with a fundamental discussion on student growth and development, this resource provides learning objectives and exercises to help prepare peer educators for such tasks as tutoring, student orientation, residence hall advising, crisis intervention, coaching, and more. Perfect for individual or group use, Students Helping Students is a long-awaited guide for students and campus professionals.
