Counselors' Job Satisfaction across Education Levels, Settings, and Specialties
Gambrell, Crista E.
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Regent University
This study examined counselor satisfaction across education levels (Masters and Doctorate), work settings (private practice and institutions), and specializations (mental health counselors, school counselors, counselor educators, and creative arts/other counselors). Counselors were surveyed counseling professionals across these variables to determine if there are any significant differences in satisfaction with the work itself, present pay, promotion opportunities, supervision, people at work, and career overall. Findings indicate that (1) Doctorate level counselors were more satisfied with promotion opportunities than Masters level counselors, and (2) Counselor educators were most satisfied with promotion opportunities than mental health, school, or creative arts/other counselors. Implications for counselor education, supervision, and graduate students and new counselors are discussed.
