Credentialing Survey of Human Development Counseling Graduate Students Attitudes Toward Licensure, Program Accreditation and Professional Identity.
Sparacio, Richard T.
A movement in many states proposes licensing those that wish to identify themselves as professional counselors. In attempting to pass licensing legislation, however, the question of support becomes a critical one. In order to survey the attitudes of a group of Human Development Counseling (HDC) graduate students, licensure, program accreditation and professional identity were put to a sample group. Results indicate strong support for credentialed counselor and licensure. HDC students also indicated the need for stronger role definition for counselors and the need for a philosophical base from which to work. The survey questionnaire, reports from the APGA and an annotated bibliography of ERIC search results are included in the appendices. (PK)
