The Cloudy Crystal Ball: A Projection of the Nature of the University Counseling Center in the Year 2000.
Maes, John L.
The nature of counseling in the year 2000 will be determined more by developing social needs than by existing programs. Since the direction of social development is toward increasingly dynamic, complex, and potentially stressful times, counseling services must be responsive to such conditions. The university counselor of the future will need to be more: (1) interdisciplinary; (2) vocationally flexible; (3) culturally aware; (4) willing to affect changes in the structure; (5) open about his own values; (6) venturesome and less centralized in his work location; (7) responsive to situational dynamics; and (8) innovative in his helping responses. The author sees Caplan's Community Mental Health Model as the best contemporary model for fitting these qualities into a theoretical framework. It looks at the promotion of mental health on three levels. A counseling service built upon these principles would be a loose and flexible consortium of professionals with a team approach to situational problems, and stable centers for certain educational and therapeutic purposes.
