School Counselors: A Review of Contemporary Issues
Bain, Steve F.
Research in Higher Education Journal, v18 Dec 2012
This article seeks to review the topic of school counselors and the contemporary issues surrounding this profession. An introduction to the profession and overview of its history provides a comprehensive basis on which to understand today's school counseling profession. An examination of contemporary themes of school counseling will include job descriptions, preparation, mental health issues, families and communities, student success, leadership, and issues in technology. Counselor identity, functions, and ethics will seek to understand how a counselor comes to relate personally and professionally to the position, how the functions of a school counselor are ever-changing, and what impact ethics have upon the profession. The literature review will contain both empirical and summative resources from professional sources.
