Scholarship and Counseling: A Perfect Marriage?
Erwin, Terry McVannel
Just as couples must find ways of celebrating their individual talents within their union, so must counseling find ways of defining the marriage of counseling and scholarship while supporting the diverse talents of each counselor. This paper explores the broad context of scholarship in ways that celebrates individual talents and moves towards a definition of the profession that sets it apart from other helping professions. It suggests that one way to find the perfect blend between scholarship and counselor education is to establish a working mission statement that is accepting, inclusive, and encourages faculty and student growth. This paper serves as a means to open dialogue on the changing facets of the school counselor's professional role. (Author)
