The University of Missouri Survey of Counseling Psychologists. A Search and Identify Mission. The Counseling Psychologist Discovered: "Who Are They and How Did They Get That Way?" Counseling Psychology - The Error of the Assumed Essence.
Krauskopf, C. J.; And Others
The data presented are the findings of a survey of counseling psychology graduates from all schools offering doctorates between 1962 and 1967. A stratified sample of 208 graduates was selected. Responses were elicited on such survey items as: (1) the quality and make-up of their doctoral programs; (2) whether or not they are members of APA; (3) their educational background; (4) the amount of research carried on since graduation; (5) which journals they read; and (6) types of work and settings in which they function. A discrepancy was found between counseling psychologists' preparation and their actual performance, professional identification, and primary job functions. The scientist-practitioner dichotomy was supported. A reorganization of doctoral training and a change in the professional role and functions of counseling psychologists is seen as inevitable. (TL)
