THE FUTURE OF ELEMENTARY SCHOOL GUIDANCE.
HOUGHTON, HUBERT W.
THE RESEARCH REVIEWED INDICATES THE NEED FOR A WELL-DEFINED CONCEPTION OF THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL GUIDANCE PROGRAM AS A UNIQUELY FUNCTIONING ENTITY. EMERGING AGREEMENTS WHICH MAY BECOME PART OF THE BASIC THEORY AND FUNCTIONAL ASPECTS OF ELEMENTARY SCHOOL GUIDANCE INCLUDE (1) MODIFICATION OF PUPIL, TEACHER, AND PARENT BEHAVIOR WITH OBJECTIVES BASED ON THE REGULAR STUDY OF CHILDREN'S NEEDS, (2) SERVICES WHICH ARE AVAILABLE FOR ALL BOYS AND GIRLS, (3) SPECIAL KNOWLEDGES, APPROACHES AND TRAINING DEVELOPED PARTICULARLY FOR THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL COUNSELOR, (4) FUTURE ACTION WITH RESPECT TO THEORY, PRACTICES, COUNSELOR ROLE, AND FUNCTION WHICH IS COOPERATIVELY DEVELOPED BY ALL MEMBERS OF THE SCHOOL STAFF AT ALL LEVELS (LOCAL AND STATE), AND (5) THE NEED FOR MORE PREVENTION-CENTERED AND LESS PROBLEM-CENTERED COUNSELING. DISAGREEMENT IS GENERATED BY THE USE OF A VARIETY OF ALREADY EXISTING APPROACHES IN ELEMENTARY GUIDANCE (SUCH AS THERAPEUTIC COUNSELING, SECONDARY SCHOOL GUIDANCE, CHILD STUDY) AND BY USE OF ONLY PROFESSIONAL JUDGMENT IN COUNSELOR TRAINING DUE TO A LACK OF JOB ANALYSIS. OTHER ISSUES NEEDING RESOLUTION INCLUDE THE DIFFERENTIAL NATURE OF ELEMENTARY SCHOOL COUNSELING, THE RELATIONSHIP OF EDUCATIONAL GUIDANCE WITH OTHER PUPIL PERSONNEL SERVICES, THE NEED FOR A STRUCTURAL PATTERN TO SERVE AS A MODEL FOR DEVELOPMENT, AND THE COUNSELOR-CLIENT RATIO. THIS IS ONE OF THE REPORTS FROM THE ZION CONFERENCE AND THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL DEMONSTRATION CENTERS INCLUDED IN "ELEMENTARY SCHOOL GUIDANCE IN ILLINOIS." (PS)
