A Study of Counselor Mental Health as It Relates to Student Perception of Guidance Services.
Weinrach, Stephen G.
This field study was undertaken to investigate the relationship between the level of counselor self-actualization and student evaluation of the guidance program. The sample included counselors in 23 Ohio high schools who completed "Shostrom's Personal Orientation Inventory" (POI) and their respective 11th grade students who completed "Wysong's Guidance Program Evaluation Student Survey" (GPES). Selected scores on the POI and GPES were correlated. Guidance programs which received a high rating by students tended to be administered by counselors who received high scores on the POI. It is suggested that counselor sex, age, and type and extent of graduate training should also be correlated with student evaluation of the guidance program. Recommendations for future research are made. (Author)
