Teacher Perceptions of Counselor Roles.
Morris, Tom; Hueschen, John
Questionnaires were sent to one teacher and one counselor at each of 117 schools that had participated in Transescent Seminars held at the University of Wisconsin in Platteville. Responses were obtained from teachers and counselors and were analyzed in terms of counselor roles proposed in the Wisconsin Developmental Guidance Model. Both teachers and counselors completed identical forms, rating the extent of involvement of the counselor in each of 14 roles. The counselor role ranked highest by teachers and counselors was "Consultation with teachers about individual student concerns." The second ranked role according to teachers was "Consultation with parents." Teachers saw counselors as being more involved in this activity than counselors ranked themselves. The third ranked role according to teachers was "Individual counseling with students." The fourth ranked role according to teachers was "Consultation with administrators." Teachers and counselors were in close agreement in their ratings of consultation with teachers about individual student concerns and individual counseling with students. There were significant differences in the average ratings of only four roles: consultation with parents, referral of students to community agencies, consultation with teachers about classroom activity development, and consultation with teachers about professional concerns of the teacher.
