Guidance Consultant: Questions and Directions.
Northrop, James C.
The new emerging role of the consultant to counselors is considered. The consultant will function in a helping relationship with a colleague in counseling and related pupil personnel services with emphasis upon counseling and guidance services. Indicated are several needs for this professional: (1) the need to support the counselor in achieving professional identity; (2) continued support of new developments in the field; and (3) the need for support in a crisis situation which would enable the counselor to function more capably in future crises. Specific needs of counselors are considered to develop the service of a consultant. Also discussed is the problem of how the consultant enters and is incorporated into a school system. Suggestions are made on how to inform the consultant of the existing system and what steps should be taken to use him most effectively. Described are some different types of consultation situations and the consultation process. Also discussed are cautions in consultations, followup of the consultations and implications for directions in the acceptance of the consultant. (Author/MC)
