THE COUNSELOR AND RESEARCH.
BENOIT, ROBERT B.; DEMOS, GEORGE D.
AN ATTEMPT WAS MADE TO IDENTIFY THE PROBLEMS, ISSUES, FUNCTIONS, QUESTIONS, AND KINDS OF RESEARCH CONDUCTED BY ACTIVE COUNSELORS IN THE FIELD OF PUPIL PERSONNEL SERVICES. A QUESTIONNAIRE WAS DEVELOPED FROM ISSUES CONSIDERED TO BE OF IMPORTANCE TO THE PUPIL PERSONNEL PROFESSION AND MAILED TO A RANDOM SAMPLE OF 500 MEMBERS SELECTED FROM A ROSTER OF THE ENTIRE MEMBERSHIP OF THE CALIFORNIA COUNSELING AND GUIDANCE ASSOCIATION. ANALYSIS OF THE DATA OBTAINED FROM THE RETURNED QUESTIONNAIRES INDICATED THAT LESS THAN HALF OF THE RESPONDENTS WERE CONDUCTING RESEARCH. MORE TIME AND FINANCIAL SUPPORT WERE MENTIONED BY A MAJORITY OF THE RESPONDENTS AS NEEDED TO CARRY OUT THEIR RESEARCH PROJECTS. ROUGHLY, ONE-HALF OF ALL THE RESEARCH IS BEING CONDUCTED IN AREAS INCLUDED UNDER ANTI-POVERTY LEGISLATION, SPECIFICALLY, DROPOUTS AND THE CULTURALLY DEPRIVED. THE MAJORITY OF THE RESEARCH WAS BEING CARRIED OUT AT THE SECONDARY LEVEL, WITH HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS COMPRISING THE LARGEST SINGLE GROUP BEING STUDIED. ADDITIONAL RESULTS, CONCLUSIONS, AND RECOMMENDATIONS WERE DISCUSSED. TABLES ARE INCLUDED. (CG)
