Counselor Characteristics and Attitudes: Implications for the Selection and Training of Effective Counselors.
Jackson, Mozelle V.
One hundred twenty-six counselor education students, differentiated according to counselor education status and sex, were studied for differences in attitudes toward self, most people, most clients, and purposes as a counselor. Practicum students completing their educational program were more positive in their counseling-related attitudes than major and non-major students at the introductory course level. As a group, the women students were more positive in their counseling-related attitudes than the men students. Practicum students showed no significant attitude change at the end of practicum; when differentiated according to supervisors' ratings and sex; nor one year later. However, a year later there was a tendency toward a decrease in positiveness of counseling-related attitudes. Comparisons are made with effective school counselors and implications for the selection and training of counselors. (Author)
