Tangdhanakanond, Kamonwan; Lee, Dong Hun
School Psychology International, v35 n2 p115-121 Apr 2014
The purpose of the present study was to compare Thai and Korean college students on their perceptions of the roles and functions of school psychologists. One hundred and ninety-three Thai college students and 238 Korean counterparts participated in this study. Students rated the importance of various roles/functions of a school psychologist and specified who should assume those roles/functions in the absence of a school psychologist. Results indicated that Thai education students rated the roles/functions of counselling students, intervention, consultation with teachers, and consultation with parents, significantly higher ("p"<?0.01) than their Korean counterparts. However, there was no significant difference between the two groups on the assessment role ("p">?0.05). Thai students expected their relatives and school personnel and other related people outside of the schools to fill in the vacuum of a school psychologist significantly ("p"<?0.01) more than their Korean counterparts did in all roles and functions.
