PARENT-COUNSELOR CONTACTS IN A UNIVERSITY SETTING--INCIDENTAL OR INCREMENTAL.
MILLS, DAVID H.
UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS TODAY ARE MOVING TOWARD INCREASED AUTONOMY. THE UNIVERSITIES ARE RESPONDING BY BECOMING LESS PARENTAL, ALTHOUGH NOT AS FAST AS STUDENTS WOULD LIKE. DESPITE THEIR EMANCIPATION FROM PARENTS AND PARENT-LIKE AUTHORITY, STUDENTS STILL TEND TO SEE THE COUNSELOR AS A PARENTAL FIGURE. THE COUNSELOR MUST THEREFORE HELP THE STUDENT RESOLVE HIS DEPENDENCY CONFLICT WITHOUT REJECTING HIS PARENTS OR FOSTERING OVERDEPENDENCY. PARENT-COUNSELOR CONTACT IN THE UNIVERSITY SETTING IS INCIDENTAL TO THE RESOLUTION OF THE STUDENT'S DEPENDENCY-INDEPENDENCY DIFFICULTIES. LITTLE RESEARCH HAS BEEN DONE IN THIS AREA ALTHOUGH SOME DATA INDICATE THAT THE QUALITY OF THE PARENT-CHILD RELATION IS SEEN IN THE CHILD'S LATER BEHAVIOR AND ATTITUDES. (WR)
