New Roles for Counselors: A Search of the ERIC Data Base for Material Relevant to the Changing Position of the Counselor as He Works within the School and Community.
Ruby, Marc E., Comp.; Pratt, Richard W., Comp.
Bibliographically speaking, material on the subject of counselor roles is not difficult to find. However, any close examination of the mass of documents and articles involved quickly reveals that most of these are either purely descriptive studies or critical essays. Document after document points out that counselors are not being adequately utilized, or are being forced into ineffective roles, but few writers have constructive ideas or suggestions to make. The current bibliography, which is based on several computer searches of the ERIC Data Base, is an attempt to weed out the repetitive material and focus on documents of practical, or, at least, conceptual, usefulness to the counselor in his attempt to define new, more effective, roles and acquire the skills necessary to carry out these roles.
