Crisis Intervention: The Role of the School Counselor.
Francisco, Ruth-Marie; Fasko, David, Jr.
Due to the frequent occurrences of violence in schools across America, one must wonder how a school and a community will cope in the face of a crisis. This paper examines the role of the school counselor in crisis intervention by having school counselors in Eastern Kentucky complete a survey concerning their competence in fulfilling this role. The study finds that school counselors do recognize the importance of their role in crisis intervention; however, everyone, not just the school counselor, plays an important role in the intervention process. Results show a great need for crisis intervention at this time, and indicate that training must not be limited to school counselors and administrators. Schools should prepare intervention plans that can effectively move the school and community back to a normal routine as soon as possible. Appendix A is the Counselor Questionnaire.
