Counseling Psychology: In Search of a Paradigm.
Robb, Harold B., III
Counseling psychologists would be wise to distinguish themselves from other specialists by adopting an educational paradigm in which counseling psychologists function as teachers or trainers. In this role, they provide experiences designed to establish, increase or broaden desired skill, knowledge or motivation. The educational paradigm is broad enough to serve as the basic model for counseling psychology, and the college of education becomes its natural home. This paradigm also serves as a reasonably autonomous entity within the university and may administer both doctoral degrees and sub-doctoral programs to certify increasingly sophisticated skill levels.
