Problems Associated With Simulating A Counselor's Function in the Student Decision-Making Process. The Bartlesville System.
Roberts, Tommy L.
With the emergence of the computer into the educational-vocational guidance field, a redefining of the counselor's function was seen as necessary. Interpretations of the traditional counselor's role are included and the author redefines counseling as "the process of facilitating client self-understanding and self-management through an assessment of an individual's assets and liabilities in relation to the requirements of his life goals." As the definition encompasses a combination of trait factor and client centered counseling theory, basic to its needs are adequate data, a professional counselor, and client concern for making intelligent decisions for himself. By supplying the client with useful information, an integrated simulated computer system is valuable to the field of guidance. (JS)
