DIMENSIONS OF THE COUNSELOR'S RELATIONSHIPS.
KACZKOWSKI, HENRY R.
THE PUPIL PERSONNEL SERVICES CONCEPT EMPHASIZES A TEAM APPROACH. AN INHERENT WEAKNESS IN THIS CONCEPT IS THE TENDENCY TOWARD COMPARTMENTALIZATION OF THE INDIVIDUAL. A NATURAL RELATIONSHIP EXISTS BETWEEN GUIDANCE AND INSTRUCTION BECAUSE BOTH DEAL WITH THE PUPIL, GUIDANCE WITH CONATIVE ASPECTS AND INSTRUCTION WITH COGNITIVE ASPECTS. THE STRATEGIES WHICH ARE COMMONLY EMPLOYED IN GUIDANCE--REMEDIAL, PREVENTATIVE, AND PROMOTIONAL--PROMOTE STRUCTURING WHICH CAUSES THE INDIVIDUAL TO LOSE FLEXIBILITY. SELF-CONCEPT IS RELATED TO SUCCESSFUL FUNCTIONING IN LEARNING AND IN LATER ADJUSTMENT TO LIFE. COUNSELORS HELP CHILDREN FORM SELF-CONCEPTS BY AIDING THEM TO DEVELOP VALUES. POOR TASK DEFINITION CAUSES ELEMENTARY SCHOOL COUNSELORS TO ADOPT PROCEDURES USED WITH OLDER CHILDREN. COGNITION PLUS EMOTION (RATIONAL THERAPY) SEEMS EFFECTIVE IN CHANGING BEHAVIOR. COUNSELORS SHOULD DEVELOP A PARTICULAR PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE AND DEVELOP THEIR PERCEPTUAL ORGANIZATION RATHER THAN MASTER COUNSELING TECHNIQUES AND THEORY. THE ESSENTIAL PROCEDURE USED IN TEACHER CONSULTATION IS EXPLORATION OF SELF-CONCEPT. THIS PROCEDURE CREATES CONFLICT WITHIN THE TEACHER BETWEEN A DESIRE TO HELP A CHILD, AND TIME AND KNOWLEDGE LIMITATIONS. AS ORGANIZATION OF THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL DOES NOT PROVIDE OPPORTUNTIES FOR REGULAR CONSULTATION BETWEEN COUNSELORS AND TEACHERS, PLANS FREEING TEACHERS FOR PROFESSIONAL TASKS OTHER THAN TEACHING ARE BENEFICIAL. THIS IS ONE OF THE REPORTS FROM THE ZION CONFERENCE AND THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL DEMONSTRATION CENTERS INCLUDED IN "ELEMENTARY SCHOOL GUIDANCE IN ILLINOIS." (PS)
