School Counseling: Criticism and Contexts.
Pine, Gerald J.
The purposes of this paper are: to identify specifically the criticisms of school counseling; to analyze what accounts for these criticisms; to indicate how school counseling should and is responding to its critics; and to look at where school counseling is headed. Through a review and analysis of the conceptual and empirical literature dealing with the development and status of school counseling the range and scope of contemporary criticism are delineated. It is suggested that criticisms of school counseling emanate from problems relating to untrained, undertrained, and uncommitted counselors; professional identity and role; societal contexts; professional ideology; and accountability. Each of these problems is defined and examined and suggestions are made regarding constructive responses to criticism and effective evaluation procedures. There is a bibliography of 124 entries.
