The Development of a Model Secondary School Counselor Education Curriculum. Final Report.
Ibrahim, Farah A.; Thompson, Donald L.
The role of the school counselor as defined by counselors and counselor educators is not always consistent with the role expectations held by students, parents, and administrators. Two research studies were conducted to develop a model curriculum for the preparation of secondary school counselors. The first was a national survey of school counselor education program curricula to develop a profile of a typical secondary counselor. The second was a Connecticut-based needs assessment survey of various constituents regarding their perception of the counselor role. Among the recommendations of the first study was a need for competency-based counselor education. Results of the second study emphasized the importance that parents and administrators place on counseling tasks. A model curriculum was developed from the survey results, including a 13-course core curriculum and 16 elective courses, four of which would be required to complete a master's degree. The appendices contain 15 data analyses tables of the survey results along with the actual survey instruments. (JAC)
