Rural School Principals’ Perception Of The School Counselor's Role, Gerta Bardhoshi, Kelly Duncan

The Rural Educator

Responding to the lack of clarity related to the defined role of the school counselor, the authors investigated school principals (n = 538), in a rural Midwest state, and their perceptions of the role of the school counselor.

School principals also perceive a number of ASCA identified inappropriate tasks ...

One School, Many Differences: An Assessment Tool For School Counselors And Multicultural Counseling, Rebecca L. Tadlock-Marlo Jan 2009

One School, Many Differences: An Assessment Tool For School Counselors And Multicultural Counseling, Rebecca L. Tadlock-Marlo

Rebecca L Tadlock-Marlo

Multicultural counseling competencies (MCCs) have typically been measured with instruments designed for and normed on mental health professionals (for example, MCCTS-R; Holcomb-McCoy, 2001; MCI; Sodowsky, Taffe, Gutkin, & Wise, 1994; D’Andrea, Daniels, & Heck, 1991). One published instrument specifically assesses school counselor MCCs (MCCTS-R; Holcomb-McCoy, 2001) but it does not conform to ASCA standards (2010, E.2). Following a set of validation procedures, an instrument designed to specifically assess school counselors’ multicultural counseling competencies was created that conforms to American School Counselor Association and Association for Multicultural Counseling and Development standards. Its creation is detailed here and the resulting instrument is presented for examination and consideration.

The Career Institute: A Collaborative Career Development Program For Traditionally Underserved Secondary (6-12) School Students, Lourdes M. Rivera, Mary Beth Schaefer

Curriculum & Instruction Faculty Publications

Career development is integral to students’ academic and social-personal development and addressing students’ needs in this area is recognized as an important responsibility of the professional school counselor. However, efforts to address students’ career development tend to be lacking or services are provided in a disconnected manner. Helping students adequately prepare for the demands of the 21st century requires that they be actively engaged in planning for the future. Facilitating their career development during the school years is an important part of this preparation. This article provides a brief overview of the literature on career development in schools and presents ...
