A Technological World.
Walz, Garry R.; And Others
This sixth chapter in "Elementary School Counseling in a Changing World" contains four journal articles which focus on technological advances. The articles help elementary school counselors explore their own feelings about technology and learn how technology may be used as a counseling tool. "Role of the Counselor with Computers" by Garry Walz notes that the computer has the potential to affect significantly the role of the counselor and examines changing counselor roles in light of recent computer innovations. "High Touch and High Technology: The Marriage That Must Succeed" by JoAnn Harris-Bowlsbey assists counselor educators, supervisors, and practicing counselors to determine conditions under which high technology alone, high touch alone, or the purposeful combination of the two may be the preferred mode of treatment. "Counselor Computer Competencies" by Don Dinkmeyer, Jr. and Jon Carlson suggests competencies the counselor needs to acquire and provides an introduction to computers and their uses. "Getting Comfortable with Computers" by Richard Nelson and Gerald Krockover lists the benefits of different computer uses for counselors. The chapter concludes with a set of issues for elementary school counselors to consider about a technological world. (NB)
