School Counseling 1967. A View from Within.
Stiller, Alfred, Ed.
This book deals with the environment of the counselor and tries to bring order and substance to the many forces acting upon him. The introduction gives a general development of school counseling. The next chapter deals with social forces as they relate to the counselor's role as agent of change. The following chapter concerns itself with federal legislation and the immediate and long range impact of these acts. Counselor education and the professionalization of the counselor are covered in the next chapter, followed by a treatise on the relationship of theory and practice in school counseling. The concept of implementation of a truly functional pupil personnel organization is given in the next chapter. The next two chapters deal with the working environment of the counselor, both pressures on him and day-to-day problems. These chapters are followed by a historical view of the American School Counselor Association (ASCA). Concluding the book is a chapter which attempts to predict trends in school counseling. (KJ)
