How Feasible is the Hybrid Peer Counseling Model in Improving Students' Problem-Solving Ability Post-Pandemic?

Susi Hardianti, Punaji Setyosari, Im. Hambali, Muslihati


Peer counseling is a counseling mechanism that utilizes the closeness and intimacy of peer relationships to explore further the problems faced by the counselee. This article aims to examine the power of hybrid peer counseling in improving students' problem-solving skills through a systematic and structured analysis of various literature and research results that have been published. The literature content analysis method was chosen to find theories and research results relevant to the use of peer counseling to find the strengths and weaknesses of the application of peer counseling. The results found that peer counseling excels in exploring problems through the intimacy of peer relationships. In addition, the existence of cognitive activity in finding solutions when peer counselors and counselees are involved in problem-solving makes counselees accustomed to optimizing their cognitive abilities on an ongoing basis. The selected hybrid media helps overcome the problems of distance, space, and time that often arise due to pandemic problems and the reluctance of communication from the counselee. Even so, peer counselors who are communication bridges between counselees and counselors still need special assistance because they are not expert counselors who have professional abilities in solving student problems.
