A Study of Human Dynamics and Humanistic Qualities as Factors Which Contributed to the Success of Guidance Counselors in a Specialized Program.
Berdy, Seymour
This study examined in detail the success factors of guidance counselors in the College Discovery and Development Program in New York City. The writer attempted to approach the study of human dynamics and humanistic qualities on several levels: the philosophical, the psychological, the organizational, and the experiential. The program sought to discover the economically and culturally deprived underachievers and to help them succeed academically and personally in high school. The student body in College Discovery consisted mainly of blacks and Puerto Ricans. Some of the sociological and psychological aspects of this population were explored in an effort to better counselor understanding and to fulfill the needs of youngsters. The use of the affective domain appeared to contribute to counselor effectiveness and to the students' understanding and acceptance of themselves. Some insight was furnished as to the organization and administration of College Discovery. As a result of this study and experiences, suggestions and recommendations were made in several areas. Some limitations of the study were also cited. (Author/PC)
