Exploring the Needs of Students Experiencing Homelessness from School Counselors' Perspectives
Havlik, Stacey A.; Brady, Jennifer; Gavin, Kathleen
Journal of School Counseling, v12 n20 2014
An increased understanding of the needs of students experiencing homelessness will better inform educational and clinical practices to ensure student success. Through an analysis of survey data using the Knowledge and Skills with Homeless Students Survey (Gaenzle & Bryan, 2013), this exploratory study applied a mixed methods approach to assess school counselors' (N = 160) perceptions of the needs of students experiencing homelessness. Thematic analysis of the survey data indicated the existence of four dynamic and interrelated themes of student needs as well as differences in reported needs by school counselors' school level and location.
