SELF-CONCEPT OF THE SCHOOL COUNSELLOR.
ISABELLE, L. A.
THERE IS A NEED FOR COUNSELORS TO DEVELOP A VOCATIONAL SELF-CONCEPT WHICH WOULD SERVE AS A GUIDE DURING THEIR PROFESSIONAL GROWTH. BASED ON SUPER'S THEORY AND DEFINITIONS, THE CRITICAL POINTS IN COUNSELOR VOCATIONAL SELF-CONCEPT DEVELOPMENT INCLUDE THE EXPLORATORY, REALITY TESTING, AND THE ESTABLISHMENT STAGES. THE COUNSELOR VOCATIONAL-EDUCATION PROGRAMS FOR ONTARIO, CANADA, ARE DISCUSSED, AND IT IS CONCLUDED THAT CHANGE IN THESE PROGRAMS IS NEEDED. CONFUSED SELF-IMAGES STEM FROM THE LACK OF AN IDENTITY AS WELL AS THE LACK OF A CLEARLY DEFINED ROLE FOR COUNSELORS. A NEW PLAN IS DESCRIBED WHICH ADVOCATES WORK AT THE GRADUATE LEVEL ON A FULL-TIME BASIS FOR A MINIMUM OF 2 YEARS. THE COURSE WORK WOULD BE DEVELOPED AROUND PSYCHOLOGY AND EDUCATION WITH ADDITIONAL COURSES IN ECONOMICS AND SOCIAL SCIENCES. PRACTICUM UNDER SUPERVISION WOULD BE REQUIRED AND PERHAPS A SUPERVISED STUDENT TEACHING EXPERIENCE. EXPOSURE TO RESEARCH WOULD BE AN ADDITIONAL PREREQUISITE. IT IS FELT THAT SUCH A CHANGE IN THE EDUCATIONAL PRACTICES WOULD HELP FUTURE COUNSELORS DEFINE MORE EXACTLY WHO THEY ARE AND WHAT THEIR ROLE SHOULD BE. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE ANNUAL CONFERENCE OF THE ONTARIO SCHOOL COUNSELLOR'S ASSOCIATION (2D, DON MILLS, NOVEMBER 10-12, 1966). (AF)
