Counseling in the Elementary Feeder Schools.
Dunham, Virginia
This brief paper presents the concept of transition counseling between a junior high school and its feeder school(s), designed to make the change from elementary into junior high less traumatic. Aside from routine sixth grade counseling, the counselors expanded their base of counseling to include all types of problems as well as all grade levels. Four basic goals were identified: (1) developing life adjustment goals with students; (2) developing socialization skills; (3) developing career awareness and planning; (4) orienting students to new people, places and tasks.
