JLBC Approaches to Counseling


JLBC Approaches to Counseling:

JLBC Directive: Counselor-centered, simple, and quickly provides short-term solutions.

The leader has all the skills to assess the situation and offer a course of action.

Nondirective: JLBC Cadet-centered counselor causes the JLBC Cadet to take responsibility for solving the problem.

Combined: The leader uses parts of the directive and nondirective approaches. This allows the leader to adjust the technique to emphasize what is best for the soldier.

Problem Solving:

1. JLBC Cadets Identify the problem

2. JLBC Cadets Gather information

3. JLBC Cadets Develop courses of action

4. JLBC Cadets Analyze and compare courses of action

5. JLBC Cadets Make a decision, select a course of action

6. JLBC Cadets Make a plan

7. JLBC Cadets Implement a plan

Reasons for Counseling:

performance standards.

Personal: Helping solve a unique problem.

Professional Growth and Guidance: A leader concerned with the professional development of subordinates informs his JLBC Cadets about the many challenges and benefits of a military Career.
