Counselors and the Community.
Over the last quarter of the 20th century, the counselor role moved substantially from one that focused primarily on remediation to one that focused on prevention. This chapter discusses the possible move toward a third role shift focusing on a developmental framework. The shift to this developmental focus rests on the premise that counselors need to provide emotional and social support so that all children succeed. The community involvement model for developmental guidance is included as a model for mobilizing a community effort to meet the developmental needs of children. The role changes necessary for schools and school counselors based on this model are highlighted. (GCP)
