Helping Students with Emotional Abuse: A Critical Area of Competence for School Counselors
Buser, Trevor J.; Buser, Juleen K.
Journal of School Counseling, v11 n9 2013
Many school counselors experience difficulties in identifying and reporting suspected cases of emotional abuse. These difficulties are concerning, given the relatively high prevalence rates of emotional abuse. In this article, we discuss the definition of emotional abuse, review research on its prevalence and psychological correlates, and provide recommendations for reporting suspected cases. Attention is also given to the school counselor's role in training teachers/staff on emotional abuse issues and intervening with students who experience emotional abuse.
