Counselors as Esteem Builders.
Santa Rita, Emilio, Jr.
This paper contains an instrument for evaluating college counselors as esteem-builders, using Borba's Analysis of Self-Esteem. The instrument is divided into five components, each of which should be fostered in a student by the counselor: (1) Security, a feeling of strong assuredness; (2) Selfhood, a feeling of individuality; (3) Affiliation, a feeling of belonging, acceptance, or relatedness in relationships that are considered important; (4) Mission, a feeling of purpose and motivation in life; and (5) Competence, a feeling of success and accomplishment in things regarded as important or valuable. Each component includes elements that the counselor must know when counseling a student and fostering his or her self-esteem. These elements fall under the categories "esteem builders,""possible indicators of weak competence," and "possible indicators of strong competence." An evaluation scale with questions also is provided for each component. (Contains 20 references.) (EMH)
