A Study of the Attitudes of Students Toward Their Counselors.
Mattison, Mary Ann; Starkey, John D.
This study investigated students' attitudes toward their counselors in a small midwestern high school. Various groups in the high school were identified and their attitudes compared. Attitudes were obtained in the areas of personal, vocational, and educational counseling. The data was obtained by administering an opinionaire to the freshmen and seniors in the high school. The major finding of this study was that in general most groups held the same attitudes toward their counselor. Concerning personal counseling, most groups agreed that their counselor understood them, was interested in their welfare, and was not too busy to listen to them. Most groups also felt that they could communicate with their counselor and would rather not have a different counselor. Whether the counselor was thought of as a disciplinarian or lacked empathy, or whether it was feared he might put damaging information in students' records was not measured by this stdy. It was suggested that another study would have to be done to find these answers. (Author/BW)
