Promising Practices in School Counselor Role Communication.
Erpenbach, William J.; And Others
The activities described exemplify the efforts of school counselors nationally to explain the "why" and "how" of the school counseling profession to their significant others -- pupils, parents, teachers, administrators, school boards and community groups. The survey found that, in communicating their role to administrators and school boards, counselors utilized a paucity of explanatory efforts, only 3 of which merited inclusion. Where role communication to parents and the community are concerned, considerable variety was found, most of which relied on video assistance or role playing and audience participation. However, there was a distinct absence of systematic follow-through. Role communication to pupils is generally done in the form of cartoon characters (junior high) and organized orientation programs (secondary students). A conventional talking approach was found to predominate where counselors communicated their roles to teachers. Sample activities are included for all groups. (TL)
