Counseling Psychology in New Zealand.
Manthei, Bob
The history of counseling psychology in Australia, which has been marked by confusion and uncertainty about the distinction between it and other applied areas such as clinical psychology, community psychology, educational psychology, and psychotherapy, is discussed in this paper. The development of the Division of Counselling Psychology within the New Zealand Psychological Society is traced and the more recent and distracting tensions that exist within the areas of clinical psychology, counseling, and psychotherapy are discussed. Counseling-related research conducted in New Zealand during the 1980s is reviewed and trends and omissions are identified. These topics are included: (1) the history of counseling psychology in New Zealand; (2) the history of clinical and counseling psychology research; (3) previous reviews of counseling-related research; (4) descriptions of the activities of guidance counselors and applied psychologists; (5) applications of counseling to specific settings, such as sexual counseling, pastoral counseling, unemployment counseling, abortion/pregnancy counseling, crisis counseling, prison counseling, and grief counseling; (6) training resources and developments; (7) critiques of counseling theories and training models; (8) evaluations of training; (9) counseling research; (10) testing and assessment; (11) bicultural counseling; and (12) evaluation.
