Accountability and a Systems Approach to Marital Counseling in the University.
Paulson, Donald L., Jr.
The purpose of this paper was to bring together the concept of educational accountability and a systems approach to delivering marital counseling services to a university community. In so doing a heavy emphasis was placed on outliving the basic assumptions underlying the current movement for educational accountability and presenting one, very viable, model for defining and achieving educational accountability. The only concrete reference to marital counseling was as an example of how the process model for defining and achieving educational accountability might be implemented. First, the increasing importance of accountability in the next few years was emphasized. Secondly, by giving an example of accountability theory in practice, it was shown that it is a nonthreatening issue and worthwhile in the design and implementation of campus mental health services. Finally, it was noted that while the example of implementing the accountability model was concerned with marital counseling, this model is applicable for all levels and types of mental health interventions on the college campus.
