A 3-year training program for lay counsellors sponsored jointly by family-life agencies & a community college in Ontario is described & evaluated. The program has a twofold aim: to involve mature citizens as practicing counsellors in a community based remedial program for couples & families with interpersonal problems & to enable family service agencies to offer quality counselling that seems impossible to afford solely through the employment of professionals.
