A Study of Counselors and Their Utilization of Counseling Skills.
Tatar, Marina; Tracer, Edith
In October of 1974 a follow-up study was conducted using a sample of 50 Master's level graduates in guidance and counseling from Northeastern Illinois University. Questionnaires were mailed to derive information relative to (1) professional employment, current and preferred, (2) professional skills most frequently used and (3) graduate courses considered most valuable. Both descriptive and inferential statistics were used to test hypotheses and analyze the data. Although many graduates of both sexes were not working in their field, more men were employed as counselors. A dissatisfaction with current professional roles was expressed by the graduates. Women were significantly more dissatisfied. The respondents did not regard the job market as a significant factor in employment. Course work was found to have a definite relationship with the counseling activities of the graduates. The practicum was regarded as the single most valuable course by the majority of respondents. Over half of the graduates were pursuing further education but few were continuing in guidance and counseling. (Author)
