A Role Model for the Elementary School Counselor in the Seventies.
This paper presents a role model for the elementary school counselor. For purposes of this role model, elementary school guidance is viewed as both a concept (philosophy) and as a process (implementation). The process is the action or the implementation by which the concept or philosophy is realized. The aspect of the process which deals with services is predominantly the responsibility of the elementary school counselor. The counselor's role encompasses direct and indirect services: the direct is the counseling experience and is provided by way of face to face contact with the child. The indirect services are usually through instruments, as in testing, or through other persons, as with the teacher. The counselor also has guidance responsibilities which are shared with the staff, both the instructional and non-instructional. (KJ)
