The University and A Fully Functioning Counseling Center. A Theoretical Viewpoint.
Danskin, David G.
Counseling centers must generate attention to educational processes and their effects on students. Counseling psychologists must then perform three functions. These functions could be performed by the following personnel: (1) the educational personnel researcher would aid in the understanding of the changing nature of students and the effects of educational programs on students; (2) the communication specialist would make available to faculty, administrators, and students the sorts of information that will encourage them to think about education with respect to the extent and ways students change during, for example, a particular course of educational experience and would also serve as a consultant in times of tension; (3) the student development specialist would invent a variety of ways to enhance student self-awareness and evolve experiences for developing individual talents. Under the plan proposed, the counselor's major commitment of time would not be directly with students, but with faculty, administrative personnel and student leaders. (Author/EK)
