Counseling in Community: Myth or Reality?
This chapter reviews the myths and stories of counseling over the past several decades and proposes that the twenty-first century story of counseling must be counseling in community. This paradigm change will involve counselors joining with mental health professionals, career development specialists, and educators to write the story of professionals working together in collaboration to transform counseling for the future. The details of this new paradigm are as follows: the community will be a global community in which the emphasis will be on the health and wholeness of all persons in society; the foundations will be spiritual; the methodology will be technological, utilizing the techniques of virtual reality; organizations will change in structure and ideology; and the leadership will be synergistic.
