Introduction to Egans Skilled Helper Model

Introduction to Egans Skilled Helper Model

An essential set of skills and processes for any counsellor working in the South African context. This set of introductory resources seeks to advocate Egans Skilled Helper model as a solution and standard shaping model for community counselling. 


About Egan’s skilled helper model:


This is a 3-stage model offered by Egan as useful in helping individuals solve problems and develop opportunities. The goals of using the model are to help individuals ‘to manage their problems in living more effectively and develop unused opportunities more fully’, and to ‘help people become better at helping themselves in their everyday lives.’ (Egan G., ‘The Skilled Helper’, 1998, p7-8). Thus there is an emphasis on empowerment. Also, the person s own agenda is central, and the model seeks to move the person towards action leading to outcomes which they choose and value.


For more information purchase Egan's books. This toolkit includes a small sample of useful resources without copyright. The intentional is to advocate this model for community counsellors, and counselling, social work or psychology students in South Africa.
