Outcome Research: Implications for Counseling in the Elementary School.
Weinrach, Stephen G.
Reviews of the literature suggest the need for research of outcomes of school counseling. This document attempts to speak to this problem. Section One reviews studies in methods of evaluating counselor behavior and counseling outcome. It proposes a counselor task survey which would involve counselors, parents, clients, and teachers in elementary schools in designing their own instruments to measure counselor effectiveness. Section Two describes specific methods by which valuing of counseling by students in a middle school can be produced and evaluated in behavioral terms. Section Three presents the results of a questionnaire study designed to determine the extent to which 325 students at a middle school displayed approach behavior towards their new counselor. The results showed that on most items a majority of students displayed approach behavior. (MPB)
