IMPRESSIONS OF SHORT TERM COUNSELING INTERVIEWS AMONG 187 FRESHMAN STUDENTS AT GIBBS JUNIOR COLLEGE, ST. PETERSBURG, FLORIDA.
HAYES, EDWARD DANIEL; MONROE, ETHEL M.
RECOGNIZING THE INADEQUACY OF A TYPICAL 1- OR 2-WEEK ORIENTATION PERIOD TO PROVIDE ADJUSTMENT TO A NEW TYPE OF EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTION, THE STAFF OF GIBBS JUNIOR COLLEGE SCHEDULED AN ADDED HALF-HOUR INDIVIDUAL COUNSELING SESSION FOR EACH OF THE 187 FRESHMAN. THE INTERVIEWS COVERED (1) SCHEDULING AND ACADEMIC PROGRESS, (2) PERSONAL-SOCIAL ADJUSTMENT, (3) VOCATIONAL CHOICE, AND (4) PERSONAL INVENTORY (TEST RESULTS, SUCCESSES, FAILURES). SEVERAL WEEKS AFTER THE INTERVIEWS, A QUESTIONNAIRE WAS SENT TO THE STUDENTS TO LEARN HOW THEY REGARDED THE COUNSELING THEY HAD BEEN GIVEN. THE MOST SIGNIFICANT RESPONSES WERE (1) A GENERALLY HIGH REGARD FOR THE COUNSELOR AND AN APPRECIATION OF HIS RESPONSIBILITIES, (2) A BELIEF THAT THE INTERVIEW WAS USEFUL, (3) A WISH BY MOST FOR GREATER PRIVACY AND A LITTLE MORE TIME FOR THE INTERVIEW, (4) SATISFACTION WITH THE EXPLANATION OF TEST SCORES AND AGREEMENT THAT SUCH KNOWLEDGE WOULD BE USEFUL, AND (5) A FEELING OF NEED FOR ADDITIONAL COUNSELING. THIS ARTICLE IS PUBLISHED IN THE "JOURNAL OF NEGRO EDUCATION," VOLUME 34, SPRING, 1965. (HH)
